Celebrate Your Athletes With Sports Banners!
Fall sports are in full swing with the rivalries and team spirit making games exciting. Another great way to celebrate your athletes is with vinyl sports banners to display at games!
We work with a number of high schools who really love these durable sports banners. Many schools honor the senior class athletes by having sports banners created with special images and graphics. Pictured above are the banners from the Hill-Murray Varsity Football Team; we think they look great, especially hanging from the stands at the game!
David Grupa Sports (the sports photography division of David Grupa Portrait) also produced sports banners for Concordia Academy in Roseville, MN featuring the senior class athletes from the football, volleyball, soccer and cross country teams. A few of those are shown here as well.
Sports Banners are designed with your team’s colors and custom graphics. All sports banners are printed on heavyweight 13 oz vinyl with seamed edges and metal grommets in the corners for easy hanging and excellent durability. These can be displayed indoors or out and are built to handle the elements!
To have David Grupa Sports create these awesome sports banners for your team and players, give the studio a call today! 651.748.8779

It’s funny. I’ve been photographing high school seniors for more years than I can remember and almost every parent pauses to catch their breath when they see the final images. In their mind, they still see the cute little 5 year old heading off to their first day of school with a fistful of pencils and a brand-new backpack.
Then they pause and say “they grow up way too quickly.”
Even though both of my sons are grown and past the senior portrait stage, the feeling never really goes away. Last weekend, Kirsten and I had the pleasure of photographing my youngest son, Joseph, and his fiancee Taylor. Both graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth this past spring and are now planning a wedding for next April.
As you can see, these two are a really great couple and are awesome together. It’s exciting to think about welcoming a new member into the family. (It may even be more exciting to attend a wedding and not worry about bringing my camera!)
Needless to say, we’re all very pleased and excited for them both.
Still, they grow up way too quickly.
When was the last time you got the whole gang together for a family portrait? If you’re like most people, the answer is “too long ago.”
While a photograph of the entire family “all together” is a great experience, there are some times when it’s simply not possible to get all the members in the same room at the same time. As the kids grow up and start their own lives, sometimes it’s a trick just to get them all in the same city or state!
This is where the Family Composite fills a great need. You can still have the family portrait that you desire, while allowing family members to be photographed at a convenient time for each group. The excuses of “Johnny has hockey practice” or “Jenny has dance” can be easily overcome. Simply schedule each family group with us and we will photograph them in the studio and do the digital magic necessary to create an awesome family portrait just like the ones you see here.

A new business portrait can spruce up your online presence.
Take a look at your online profiles. You know the ones; Facebook, LinkedIn, perhaps BNI or another networking group. Now, look specifically at your business portrait.
Honestly . . . how old is it? Does it even resemble who you saw in the mirror this morning?
