Annette Paré Photography

.... Capturing the simple and the grand moments of life.

I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember.  Travels, friends, weddings, family. My photography started as a hobby and has grown into the opportunity to enter your homes, your lives, and your big moments of celebration. It's what I love to do!

My husband Dan and I live in Coon Rapids, MN with our daughters Kendall & McKenna and our son Gavin. We love our friends & family, our neighborhood, and most importantly Jesus Christ, who we serve joyfully!  

Thanks for visiting - I hope to hear from you soon.  Annette

The Pruett Family

Every fall this family trusts me with their family photos and for that I am grateful. Our lives have been knit together in unique ways as both my husband and I have worked side by side this couple in various ways over recent years and our children play well together when given the good chance. I admire Gretchen’s mad gardening skills and her laid back friendship and I look forward to summers when it’s natural for us to all hang out together as families. Enjoy these photos, dear Pruett Family! Pruett-9

The Sanderson Family

Sweet baby Alyssa recently reached her 3 month birthday and big brother Andrew celebrated his 2nd birthday. These milestones were the perfect reason for a few new family photos. Blessings to you, Kurt & Kristi, on a beautiful family and years of sweet friendship.

Andy & Celeste

Andy & Celeste ventured out on an extremely chilly Minnesota afternoon to meet me at Elm Creek Park Chalet in Maple Grove. They are looking forward to their August wedding which will probably include some much desired heat and humidity in Northern Minnesota! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Celeste at Blaine HS for a good 8-10 years (I forget how many?) and come to find out that Andy & Celeste have known each other even longer than that. Celeste is a rock star head volleyball coach and I believe that Andy has some skills of his own in that area. They were playful, fun, and up for anything during our photo session and I am thrilled for both of them to get the chance to spend life together in days and years ahead. Congrats to both of you, Andy & Celeste!

The Elliott Family

This beautiful family grew up in my small community and the Elliott kids were a few grades ahead and behind me in school and in youth group. Life goes on and people move and create their own families and then I recently received a message asking about the possibility of a day-after-Christams photo session at my parents’ farm up in Cook. Well, of course. The weather for December was perfect. The kids were adorable and the family was fun. Hay wagons, cows, heated porches, and lots of smiles hopefully gave this family exactly what they were hoping for ~ beautiful photos for Nana & Papa & all of the families involved. Thanks, Elliott Crew, for a wonderful morning together. Enjoy!
