    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.

Family {SE MN Family Portrait Photographer}

One of my absolute favorite spots to have sessions at, beautiful trees, grass, light and we can get an amazing sunset at as well. These photos are from the Fall of 2017, and this family has grown by adding 2 more grandchildren. However, I wanted to share it as I just love this session and the truck they restored was the icing on the cake.

Family of 4 {SE MN Family Portrait Photographer}

When you get to see friends from childhood and college and they trust you to capture their family’s memories, it’s the best feeling. I have been friends with Beth since we were children and would ice skate together. We also went to college together so I have known Kevin since day 1 when she would have me go with her to see what he and his friends were up to in McElroy and we would watch hockey with him and his friends. I also have taken photos of their wonderful children since they were newborns. Love them and love that I have been able to capture these moments for them.

Family {Stewartville MN Family Portrait Photographer}

It may have been a bit cold when we took these photos in September, but you’d never know by looking at these photos. And we also got lucky and we got some beautiful light and fall colors at my favorite location to shoot at when we did this session with my cousin Josh’s family.
