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 Boo Family invited me into their home to photograph their extended family this past weekend as they celebrated Christmas together on Sunday afternoon.  What a warm, inviting family, and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves to the max.  Thanks for the opportunity!  I hope you all had a terrific afternoon together.
