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 Boeser Family

Isabelle & Briggs have the best mom & dad!  They decided that a great way to take family photos would be to do something fun together – and I couldn’t agree more.  We met at Hidden Green Golf Course in Hastings at a benefit called Leaf for Lupus.  We played on the golf course, took […]
