• 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!!

Almost Here! {NE IA Maternity Portrait Photographer}

Almost here! Boy or girl? It’s going to be a surprise and we are so excited to find out if this gorgeous family will be adding another girl or a boy to their family. So exciting!

One-Year-Old Cake Smash {SE MN Infant Portrait Photographer}

Finally sharing some of this session with this one-year-old boy. I had shared the cake smash set as we built it and this one-year-old was so happy for his session. So fun! And he enjoyed his cake made by Debby Westphal to the very end as well as the bananas. I think he probably has the record for destroying his smash cake the most as well.

Newborn Boy {Spring Valley MN Newborn Portrait Photographer}

This adorable newborn boy didn’t want to sleep much during his session but am in love with all the open-eyed photos we got. Especially the photo with Mom and Dad. So sweet!

Family of 5 {SE MN Family Portrait Photographer}

This was an extra-special session because this particular family won their session during the live auction at the benefit we had for my cousin Courtney last year. Thanks so much for supporting Courtney!

We met for their session at the beautiful Forestville State Park. We had tried to get these photos in last fall, but the weather and our schedules didn’t sync. However, we ended up with a perfect day… the breeze was blowing just slightly, the sun was out but we also had a few clouds… what more can you ask for?! But we did because we got to photograph this fun family with a Mom who always organizes the best outfits for her family to wear together at their shoots.

2019 Fins & Film {SE MN Pin-Up Portrait Photographer}

Check out all the beautiful vintage pin-up models we had the privilege to take photos of the pin-ups for the Fins and Films event in Spring Valley, MN. All these ladies participated in the runway show and competed to be the cover of next year’s calendar. Some of the ladies had their hair and makeup completed by the talented ladies at Chateau de Chic, if you’d like an August 2019-July 2020 calendar featuring the models from the 2018 Fins and Films runway show, they can be purchased at Chateau de Chic, located in downtown Spring Valley, MN. All the proceeds from the calendar sales go to helping make the event Fins and Films possible.
