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 Nelson Family

These great friends live in St. Paul and Dan and I keep nudging them to move closer our way ~ we love their company and friendship and our kids love to play! I so appreciate that they took time for a quick family photo session this past weekend as it’s great to document Josiah’s growth and curious spirit as well as their whole family’s fun interactions. Much love, Amy & David! Enjoy!Nelson-9

The Daszkiewicz Family

This family shares something very near and dear to us – our wonderful daycare provider! We’ve gotten to know each other through sharing our kids experiences. For a season I would see Paula most mornings at daycare drop off and often see Chad in the afternoons. Our kids have played together for many hours and Paula & I have babies just a few months apart. I was super excited to be able to take some family photos for them earlier this evening. Enjoy, Chad & Paula! You have a sweet family.Daszkiewicz-22












The Kell Family

Jonathan & Adriann are colleagues with me at Blaine High School and our kids are all within weeks or months of each other. They are beautiful people inside and out and I was thrilled to get to photograph them this morning. The girls were promised hot cocoa and cookies and they earned every sip & bite! Blessings to your family, J&A! ~~ Adorable leg warmers handmade by Adriann. Kell-12











The Sanderson Family

Kurt, Kristi & Andrew are familiar friends on this blog as I’ve had the privilege of documenting Andrew at each of his milestones since he was born. He will be a big brother in just a few short months and family life will get even more exciting for the Sandersons. Blessings to your family as you look forward to meeting your little girl soon!

The Frasch Family

Lori & Matthias have been friends of mine for years and every fall I look forward to their family photo session. This fall was even more exciting as I got to meet Stella Claire who made her appearance on July 1st. The gift of LIFE is a most remarkable and blessed thing. We love you, Frasch Family!

The Gardner Family

Amy and I are both Counselors in Anoka Hennepin and I’ve gotten to know her family better because our kiddos played soccer together this past summer. Wednesday nights were enjoyable knowing I’d see a familiar and fun family!  She decided it was time to do family photos and I’m so glad she did.  We met at Bunker Hills this morning and had a great session. What you don’t see is the soccer ball & football that helped the boys enjoy the session as much as I did. Thanks, Gardner Family!  Enjoy your photos.Gardner-1 Gardner-16 Gardner-31 Gardner-46 Gardner-23Gardner-27 Gardner-37 Gardner-38 Gardner-45 Gardner-11 Gardner-13 Gardner-21 Gardner-35
