Faith Family Church Directories bring
your entire church family together,
matching names with familiar faces

Bring the families who worship together into focus and build relationships within your congregation with a warm, colorful, contemporary photographic church directory
published with Faith Family Directories of Fargo, ND - Moorhead, MN.

We seek to make every directory portrait unique ... reflecting the personalities, relationship and character that make each family — and your whole church or parish — special. No more cookie-cutter family photos!

We are seasoned professionals experienced in every phase of the church directory program. More important, we are your neighbors. Our goal is to insure that your church directory experience is pleasant and positive!

Instead of using the assembly-line approach (‘line 'em up and shoot 'em — next!") and high-pressure sales tactics so often associated with these projects ... we bring home-town courtesy and values.

National companies schedule only a few days on site. It can be tough to track down help solving the issues that inevitably arise after they're gone. You know where to find a local company like ours! We're here to make sure that you and your members are satisfied. We don't pack up and disappear when it's over.

Our custom-designed books are spectacular — no cut-and-paste templates required. In addition to portraits of members and the roster of contact information, our books feature striking original cover images and our professional photography of your groups and activities. Our production expert develops the page designs for the front-of-book ministry pages, too, with input from your committee — much less work for you, and a professional-looking finished product.

If you and your church family focus on keeping in touch on the Web, consider our digital alternative. Faith Family's virtual directories are state-of-the-art, totally secure and easy for you and members to update and view on smartphones, iPads and computers.

Our team is courteous and friendly. Our goal is to create excellent studio-quality family portraits during your sessions. We take the time to make you look your very best. We welcome your members' special requests — for multi-generation portraits, for example, or personal family pictures that include pets or prized possessions.

Our retouching and enhancement are spectacular! Every published and purchased family photo receives first-level retouching at no additional charge.

Even though we focus on quality and personal attention, our clients tell us our prices compare favorably with those of the big high-volume national companies. Sometimes we hear we're a little bit lower. Regardless, your families will get individually prepared, pro-quality prints with lots of choices of sizes, packages and ideas for display

We strive to complete and deliver your orders within weeks rather than months. You'll have your finished directories within about a month of giving your final approval of the proof.

Each individual or group may choose from a variety of backgrounds — from traditional neutral canvases to outdoor settings and scenes from your own church. You will have input into the formal or casual poses that express your personality best.

Your directory may include journalistic and documentary photographs of many aspects of your congregation's life, from clergy and church leadership to activities of women's, men's and youth groups. We can work with photographs taken by your members as well as take key photos for you, depending on our schedule and available dates.
