Maverick was just as excited as us……

Thank you for voting us Best of the Best for the  2021 Fillmore County Journal Reader’s Choice Awards. Without our wonderful clients, we would not be able to do what we love. We are so grateful for your continuous support over the last 16 years and honored to have been named 2021 Best of the Best Photographer in Fillmore County. Because these awards are determined by the community, they are treasured by ALL of us at Photography by Kari.

Thank you,  again!

Birthday Dog {MN Dog Portraits}

This shoot is just too cute!  My dog, Maverick, turns 2 years old today!  And since I’m a little extra and obsessed when it comes to him, we celebrated with some MN dog birthday portraits.  Last year he had a cake outside with balloons, so this year we celebrated with an ice cream cone at the studio with his birthday boy scarf

He is such a great model and every time we go to the studio for photos, he goes right to his spot when you ask him. He is the best muse a photographer could ask for.

I hope you enjoy Maverick’s silly birthday photos as much as he loved his ice cream cone!

Also, big thanks to Rylee for getting a photo of me with Maverick, too.  I LOVE it! 

If you’ve got a furry family member that will be celebrating a milestone, I’d love to capture your dog with some MN dog birthday portraits to last a lifetime. Send us a message using our contact form or email us.

S Family {MN Family Portrait Session}

The S Family is one of my favorite families to photograph! I have been taking pictures of Dallas and Tiffany since back in high school when doing prom portraits for them. And just before their session those photos taken with my cousin as well were popping up on my screen saver on one of our computers.

I have loved photographing their kids as newborns and as growing kids through the years. Masonic Park in Spring Valley, MN was a perfect spot for their family portraits with the green trees, limestone cliff, flowers and Deer Creek in the background.

Enjoy these photos of the adorable S family!

If you’re looking to have a family portrait session or have any questions, let’s chat! Just complete the contact form and we can start planning your custom family pictures! We still have a handful of fall dates and winter dates available! For more session info, be sure to visit my WEBSITE.
