• Welcome!

    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!!

Don’t Forget!

Are you sick of the snow, yet? I’m not necessarily sick of the snow, but I am sick of being stuck in the house for the last week. I hope to get out today, and get some pictures since this will likely be our last large snowstorm for the year. (I hope, at least) 🙂 I, also, wanted to remind everyone that all the fall sport’s galleries will be expiring Thursday, March 8, 2007. The galleries can be found at www.photographybykari.com/store, if you’d like to view them. After the 8th, they will no longer be available online.

Lastly, I’m sure you noticed that the blog colors and heading has changed. I changed both my blog and “store” to match a new website I’m working on. I didn’t like the one I designed in January, so I started from scratch. I’m really excited about the new one, it’s awesome. I’ll let you know when it goes live. Well, I better go finish some stuff and get my gear ready for the KHS Girl’s Basketball game, tonight. Good luck girls!

Mason, Chesney, Jackson, etc.??????




Yesterday, our family got a new male black lab puppy. It’s a little bittersweet for us as we had to have our other black lab, Barney, laid down a couple of weeks ago (Barney is shown in the first photo of the shopping cart post)

We are having a difficult time agreeing on a name for him. Some that have been thrown out there are Mason, Chesney, Jackson, Ace, Toby, Scout, Levi …. Got a vote? Any other ideas?

New Shopping Cart


Wow, it’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted. This week, I got the shopping cart added to my website. I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll be able to upload the sports galleries much more quickly, portrait galleries will be easier to find, and the ordering process will be easier. When you are at the “store” (http://www.photographybykari.com/store/index.php), you can register. You don’t have to register to view the public galleries, but after you register, you can save favorites from the all galleries and can compare pictures side by side. It will hold onto your favorites to view each time time you visit. Then when you are ready to order, you can choose the sizes, color, black and white, etc. You will also be able to pay for your order by credit card or choose to mail a check. I hope it makes easier for everyone to view and order pictures. If anyone has any questions, please e-mail me (kari@photographybykari.com).

Next week, I’ll be finishing up the new portrait website.

Kroening Family




Yesterday, I photographed the Kroening family at Florence Park. They have two of the cutest kids! Hunter and Jackie kept me and their parents smiling during the entire session. Here are a few favorites…..
