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 […]

Holly, Wilson, Chloe & Milo!

Every once in awhile a photographer has a session that just totally clicks on every single level.  This was one of those times!  I was just giddy to get home and edit these photos and be able to share them with my dear friend Holly and her kiddos Wilson & Chloe.  And don’t forget Milo! […]

The Johnsons & Company….

I enjoyed photographing this family for the second time and this year I got to meet Gretchens sister’s family, as well as her parents who are soon celebrating their 40th anniversary.  Everyone was so kind.  We made the most of the colors and leaves at Springbrook Nature Center in Fridley the morning after this crew […]

This baby boy is an amazing answer to many peoples’ prayers… his mommy & daddy had some challenging days leading up to his birth but God saw fit to give them a perfect miracle – a beautiful, healthy son who is 6 days old in these photos.  He gleaned the nickname Little Mr. over the […]

Max is 2!

I met up with Max and his parents (my good friends, Lori & Matthias!) and his grandparents on the morning of his 2nd birthday at Minnehaha Falls.  He received a beautiful tricycle for his birthday from Lori’s parents and I think he’s going to be quite the cyclist.  He’s also quite the fan of WATER […]
