    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.

    Enjoy my blog and feel free to head on over to my website to see more of my work, pricing information and such. If you would like to subscribe to the blog to get updates, there is a box at the top to type in your e-mail address. Thanks for visiting and be sure to check back often!!

1 Year Old Boy {Grand Meadow MN Baby Portrait Photographer}

Mr. O turned one …. We have had so much fun planning our cake smashes, lately, such great themes and colors. And on first birthdays, I love getting to capture a few family photos as well.

Thanks to Debby Westphal for another great cake. And it was dairy free and so good. (Yes, we had to taste it after the cake smash,too.)

Halloween {SE MN Children’s Portrait Photographer}

Halloween is just around the corner…   So excited see everyone in their great costumes, watch the kids play the games and check out all the Halloween decorations in the studio.

We started this event in 2010, so this is our 7th year doing it, and with the community’s support we were able to help raise over $3,350 the last 6 years with 100% of the proceeds going straight to Spring Valley Park & Rec!

Here’s a video of the studio decorated in 2014….
