Congratulations to Missy and Steve Herbert, who were married this last Saturday in Minneapolis, at the Wesley United Methodist Church! I picked out a few favorites from the day to share. Congrats again, enjoy your sneak peek and here's to a wonderful marriage!

I got to see this super handsome one year old last week at his grandma's house in Woodbury, MN. He's getting so big! I photographed his first year, and I cannot believe he's already 1! I've watched a lot of babies grow into toddlers this last year, and I'm amazed each time I see them, how much they've changed. I hope to see this little man again soon!

Workshop! UPDATE*** Sold Out! If you missed this one and are interested in another one down the road, make sure you let me know. If there's enough interest, I might consider doing another workshop. Thanks!

I recently had a group of people contact me asking for help with improving their photography, mentoring, and general advice. I've had lots of requests to do a workshop, but just hadn't really considered doing one, since I don't consider myself a fabulous speaker by any means. Then they reminded me that I don't need to do a whole lot of speaking if I can answer questions, and show them hands on. So they talked me into it! On June 7th I'll be holding my first ever workshop! I had kept it open to those who requested it first to give them time to register, but now it's open to everyone! There were 10 spots available, and there are 5 left, so if you're interested, don't wait or it'll be full. Here are the details so far, and the registration. I am looking forward to it!


I am also going to need some models for the workshop. See the details in the previous post.
Casting Call!

I'm very excited to be teaching a photography workshop for beginner/intermediate level photographers! This class will be on June 7th, 2008 and I'm going to need some models! We'll be needing:

- One child, age 4-6 who loves being in front of a camera and takes direction well. Update: This spot has been filled.

- One baby, who will be 7 months on June 7th. Update: This spot has been filled.

-One newborn who will be less than 2 weeks old on June 7th. Contact me if you are due the last week of May or first week of June.

These models will be photographed by a group of 10 who are learning to improve their skills. The newborn will be photographed by me while the others watch, learn and take a few shots themselves. By volunteering as a model you will receive a variety of prints of your child, taken by me and the group. Your pictures will also be published here, and possibly the blogs of the workshop attendees, so you will need to sign a model release. If you are interested in having your child model for us, please email me at info@kariphotography.com with a picture of your child. Thanks so much!

I got to meet and photograph this SUPER cute newborn baby girl! She is the baby sister of one of Nina's friends, and they live right here in Cottage Grove, MN so I only had to drive 5 minutes! How nice is that? So this little sweetie was such a good baby! She barely fussed, and when she slept, she looked like a little angel. It's times like these when I wish my baby was teeny tiny again. They grow up so fast...

I just wanted to share my newest favorite photograph of Miss Nina! She wanted to "do pictures" so, since she was willing, I put her cute little pink sundress on and dragged her matching chair downstairs, looking forward to a fun little photo shoot. Well, this is the shot we got. The ONLY shot. She let me take one picture and said, ok, all done! Not that I mind, it was completely spontanious and totally cute! I ordered up a 16x20 and it's now hanging on her bedroom wall. Love it!

I got to go see this little sweetheart on Friday! She's six months old, and has such a cute perstonality and the most adorable big blue eyes! I can't wait to photograph her again at one year! Of course, we had to get a shot of her big brother (the dog) who wanted a little attention too.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a little teaser of a new website featuring some new and different work than what I normally do. Well, curtain please! I've just launched a brand new site for intimate portraits. We did a little of this at the conference I went to the first week of March, and it was a LOT of fun, so I decided to offer it to my clients. This site is dedicated to bringing out the beauty of women, boosting their self esteem, all while giving their husbands/boyfriends a little gift. This is becoming HUGELY popular with brides to be, as well as new moms who want to feel gorgeous again. The few sessions that I've done so far have RAVED about how fun it was and how great the pictures came out. Ok, so enough babbling from me, here's the new website!
