Welcome to J.J. Killins Photography!


I’m so glad you’re here.

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile, build a website, have a place in the world wide web to call my own, and now here I am. I hope you’ll stick around and see what’s here. I also hope you’ll be a part of it.

If you’ve been in front of my camera in the past, you might find your lovely face, or those of your children, in the galleries, and if you haven’t, then what are you waiting for? Spring is upon us, what better time to capture what your family is right now. Use the contact form to book your session and ask your questions.

If you’re completely new to me, then you might want to know a little more about me. On that page you’ll find ten random facts to help you get to know me. Allow me to share a little more here…

I am a family photographer in Shoreview, Minnesota.
I grew up in California, but I call Shoreview, Minnesota my home.

I shoot newborns, babies, children, families, and everyone in between. On many occasions, people set up a photo shoot with me when their extended family will be in town. Lots of generations in one shot can be crazy and magical and important all at the same time.

I am married with two children, and my youngest will start kindergarten this fall. Therein lies a big reason I am ready to move forward with this endeavor: Time. It’s time to let it grow.

I know how busy life gets, how quickly sleepless nights turn into soccer Saturdays and practicing for spelling tests. Make time this spring or summer for a photo session with me; let me tell the story of your family in photographs.
