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

Todd & Holly, Hannah & Sydney

I met this fun family while taking photos of Tim & Kris’s family last week!  We were borrowing their beautiful back yard, when they asked if I’d come back in a week to do their family photos. Of course!  Holly & Todd were very gracious, and Hannah & Sydney were fun to watch interact as […]

A beautiful family, a perfect evening, a backyard, and a even a frog make for a wonderful photo shoot!  I love these brown eyes, and I very much enjoyed my time with this family.  The kids listened so well to mom & dad (and to the photographer!), and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Annie […]

You’ve seen Max before!  I love seeing how he’s changed and grown in the last few months while still seeing his same cute smile.  He looked like a little gentleman in his summer outfit.  My good friends Lori & Matthias are wonderful parents to this little guy, and it was so fun to hear them […]

Todd, Michelle, Isabelle & Briggs

I love spending time with this family!  They are clients who have become friends, and I love watching Isabelle & Briggs grow.  Isabelle smiled so nicely and took good care of her brother, and Briggs was content and happy the entire time.  Truly little blessings!  We had a nice morning at Valley Lake Park in […]

Anderson Brothers

These brothers were a barrel of energy and boy, did we have fun!  We met up near the pavilion at Lake Johanna for a warm, beautiful morning and we played near the water fountain, the jungle gym, and we even found some flying saucers and space mobiles over by the green grass.  I’m really looking […]

Miss Mackenzy

What a beautiful morning we had to capture 1 year old photos of Miss Mackenzy!  She’s a gal of many sweet faces and she did just great for the camera as well as for her mom & dad.  There is a certain creativity at this age that is so fun to watch.  We played with […]
