St Cloud Portrait Photography

Does this resonate with you?
I love to work together with people who feel really connected to others and the world around them, are laid back, a bit quirky, and enjoy humor in their life, but also have a serious and thoughtful side, too. I truly believe that the printed image is the best way to preserve your images, that having tea or coffee with a client turns into friendship, and a smile does more for someone’s day than a scowl.

I work in the St. Cloud area photographing families, children, and pets at their favorite outdoor location. Hearty two-hour sessions are $195, with collections starting at $400. You can add beautiful artwork to your walls or a get an album full of cherished images, and more. If you are looking for a Saint Cloud/central Minnesota portrait photographer, I would love to hear from you.

“As a Mom, I love taking pictures of my kids whenever I get a chance. After a few years of my photos including my sons and my husband only, I realized that I need someone else to take some photos of my WHOLE family. My husband was not entirely sold on a family portrait session but quickly warmed up to Barb’s easy-going nature and style. The images I love the most do not capture large cheesy smiles, but the real faces and excitement of my children. I can only imagine how much more I will love these images as my little boys grow to men.” ~ Sonny, family portrait client

“I had the privilege of having Barb photograph my two yellow labs, Winnie and Macy. Barb is a natural at capturing dogs and people in their element, allowing them to do what they do best and interact naturally! The photos turned out beautifully, and I have a lovely canvas collage print that hangs in my bedroom. As the months went by, the photos became very special to me. Macy’s health declined and she passed away. Having the photos to look at brings me great joy and peace. I feel so blessed to have professional photos that capture Macy’s love for me and my love for her! Thank you, Barb!” ~ Lisa, pet portrait client
