    Welcome to my new blog for Photography by Kari!!! This is the place where you will see my latest work, fun contests, specials, and happenings in my life. Have a look around. If you like what you see, I would love for you to leave a comment or two!

    Just a little bit about me. I'm a Southeast Minnesota based photographer specializing in family, children, and senior photography. I have always enjoyed taking pictures and valued documenting my family's life with photographs and scrapbooks. In 2005, I turned my passion for photography into a profession. I am enjoying every minute of it! I am so thankful that I get to spend time with wonderful people and get to do something I love while capturing memories for my clients at all stages of their lives.

1 Year Old Girl {SE MN Children’s Photographer}

A little summer with beautiful flowers and a little fall with pumpkins, so beautiful and similar to our weather the last week or so. This little lady was quick on her feet and had no fear. She made us work a bit, but gosh she gave us goldenly perfect photos.

Another amazing cake from Debby Westphal with the set we shared earlier this week. Such a fun theme for a cake smash.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

9 Months {SE MN Children’s Photographer}

Since we are going to have some summery temps again here in MN for the next 5 days, I thought I’d share this 9-month-old session from earlier this summer. Hard to believe we will be doing her one-year session in next couple of weeks. How cute is she with that watermelon?! and the hot air balloon?! We made that prop 2 or 3 years ago and just used it for the first time during this session. We may or may not have

too many props since we just got to use it. I say we can never have enough. It has been such a beautiful week for our 3 sessions so far, 3 more to go this week. I hope everyone will be able to get out and enjoy the weather!

Watch Me Grow 1 Year Session {SE MN Children’s Portrait Photographer}

I’ve been slacking on sharing sneak peeks, so thought I’d share a few from Miss S’s 1 Year Watch Me Grow Session as her order came in last week. Can’t wait for her parents to see the prints. I’m so sad and so happy that I was able to capture her 1st year and sad because it went by far too quickly! She was such a ham at her last few sessions and loved smiling for the camera and making us all laugh.

Maternity and Newborn Girl {SE MN Maternity & Newborn Portrait Photographer}

Excited to share this little one’s newborn session from last week, but for now here are some favorites of her family’s maternity session (since I didn’t get a chance to share them, yet) and a sneak peek from her newborn session. How cute is the hat and sock set that her big brother and sister got for her?! They even helped pick out the props and watched as we photographed this set. I kept hearing how cute she was from the both of them. She is one lucky little girl to have such great siblings that love her so much, already.
