Hi! I'm Karen
Wife. Mother. Grandma. Photographer. Mac & Cheese lover.
Hi there! Thanks for taking a minute to find out a bit about me. Family is a priority to me, always has been, always will be. I am married to a wonderful man named Tony, and with our blended family we have 6 adult children and 8 grandchildren. Tony and I love spending time with our grandkids, fishing, boating, and taking day trips around Minnesota. I have a background in early childhood education, and also worked in "Corporate America" for many years before deciding to take the leap into creating a business doing what I love.
I have chosen to focus my career on what I love. FAMILY. Pregnancy, birth, newborns, and family photography. My vision is to document the intimacy and emotion of growing families for my clients to cherish for decades ahead. I want my photos to be the ones your children are looking at when they are adults, showing their own children what life was like when they were little.
My style is authentic, natural, and loving, with some fun mixed in. I like to take a documentary approach to my photography and while I do some posing, most of my favorite photos are of the unexpected moments where life is just happening,
as these are often times my client's favorite photos, too!
I am a full service photographer, and will work with you from the moment you contact me until you have your photos on the wall or in an album on your coffee table. I believe that photos should not just be taken, but should be printed and displayed, to be admired forever.
However, if you prefer digital images, I happily provide those as well.
I will get to know you and your family before your session. The needs of each and every client will be unique to their family, and I make sure to capture that in my photography. What works for one family may not work for another. My job is to create a personalized experience for every client, and provide you with images that show your family's personality.
