We are excited to announce our third year participating in the national ‘Adorable Children’s Portrait Contest’. Schedule a portrait session with Photography by Kari for your child(ren) age newborn to 12 years now (beginning of June 2015, so if you have already had a session since June 2016, you may enter a photo) until July 2017 and you can choose to enter the Adorable National Children’s Portrait Contest. In our first year one of our clients won a 1st place in the National Adorable Children’s Contest! And last year, we had 5 winners winning $375 and also 16×20 prints. You can view our winners and the others here: https://acilab.com/adorable-contest/adorable-winners/
If you would like a session just for this contest, we will be doing Adorable Mini’s from now until July 31, 2017. They will be 30 minute sessions with 1 backdrop/one location and 1 outfit for $40 plus MN and Fillmore County Sales tax and 15% off prints bought from the session. Or you may also book a full session, too.
This is a national contest being put on by one of our labs and is open to kids ages newborn to 12 years and has a variety of categories. The photos will also be judged locally via votes on Photography by Kari’s blog in August. The top 5 winners with the most votes in the local Photography by Kari Adorable Children’s Portrait contest will receive a 16×20 print ($105 value) of the winner’s choice from the session used to enter the contest . The Grand Prize winner of the local contest will also receive a Standard Session and 5×7 session brag book from this session (a $455 value).

I’ve been photographing “B” and her family for 5 years now. One thing I have learned after all these years is she loves her princess dresses, horses and her family, sounds like something out of a fairy tale to me. And it is. Such a fun session!
How cute is this little guy?! I adore those big blue eyes, all his expressions and his growl. He even showed me how old he was,1! We had so much fun celebrating Mr. L’s first birthday back in January. His cake smash was done in some of my favorite colors. I just love those blues and greens. He also got to wear the same onesie his brothers have worn for their cake smashes. Such a great tradition and we’ve had the opportunity to photograph each of them.
Gracie had some ideas and I had some of my own. Together I think we nailed it! She’s a beautiful girl who enjoys playing volleyball, her favorite sport basketball and softball. And if you haven’t noticed- she’s a MN farm girl at heart! Love that! I grew up on a farm, my parents didn’t have cows, but my Uncle Bud milked at our farm until I was about 15, so I was always down in the barn doing the chores with him and my Grandpa, usually. Some of my favorite memories come from being in our barn working beside my family.
Gracie, it was such a joy to capture you during your senior portraits! Thank you to you and your Mom for choosing Photography by Kari. I’m truly blessed! I know you will do great things with your life and I hope you always remember your roots.
