• 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!!

Newborn Boy {Spring Valley MN Newborn Portrait Photographer}

My favorite thing to do when preparing for a newborn session is seeking out some great props that have the baby’s nursery and the family’s hobbies in mind. In doing so, I found great rustic/country things to use during Baby “H’s” newborn session….. Love the gray and maroon onesie, buffalo paid outfit, deer hat and the cowboy hat we were able to use during this session.
P.S. How adorable is that smile in the photo with Mom?!

Max ’18 {Southeast Minnesota Senior Portrait Photographer}

We had a great day hanging out with Max, his Mom and his Dad for his senior portrait session this past fall.  We first hit the new gym at Grand Meadow High School, wow what a great gym. That was my first time seeing it in person and I loved it.  We also did some in studio shots and got to see Max’s amazing shoe collection, one of my favorite photos from last fall. Lastly, we were able to visit his family’s farm where they have a vineyard.  Such a beautiful location!  His family was also very sweet and sent us home with some grapes to try.  Yum! 

Thanks for a great day!

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.)
