I LOVE everything and could not be happier! I keep looking at all of the photos and either end up crying I or can't stop smiling --I love them so much! She was such a tiny little peanut @ 9 days:-) She is now up to 10lbs and its all in her cute chubby cheeks!

THANK YOU for your time, patience and professional expertise!

"We have seen Kari Photography for over 3 1/2 years and have had several photo shoots with her. She never ceases to amaze me with her talent and ability to capture our children's expressions and personality. We are always pleased with the work and quality that she brings to photography. You will not be disappointed!"

Kari was gracious enough to be the photographer for our daughter's senior pictures. I can't adequately describe how incredible our experience was with her!! She has an AMAZING talent - and I am so grateful that she chose to share her gift with us!! Kari "came to us" we live out in the country, and we had the most wonderful and memorable day with her - and the pictures turned out absolutely beyond expectations in every way - when I think back on our daughter's senior year - one of the highlights was working with Kari - and now I am proud to call her FRIEND!! We will be using Kari again - DEFINITELY - and if anyone out there is looking for a photographer to capture one of their "life's moments", I couldn't possibly recommend her HIGHLY enough - she will exceed your expectations!!!!

"I can not recommend Kari highly enough. Not only are our portraits the most lovely and meaningful ones I've ever had taken, but the photo session itself was truly a special experience. Kari has such a special knack for working with children, and she captured our babies personalities perfectly. We never could have taken these types of pictures ourselves. Our portraits will truly be family heirlooms. I still look at our photos almost every day. I can't imagine if we had not had Kari capture these most precious moments of our lives. I'm so grateful for her talent and patience."

"Kari has taken both newborn and toddler/child photos of my daughters for me, and her work is fantastic! She has such incredible patience and tenderness with newborns and she captured my older daughter's personality perfectly! Her photos are all unique too; they don't look "just like everyone elses". I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for photos to treasure for a lifetime."

"I was so lucky to be able to have some boudoir style photos taken by Kari Layland Photography; she really knows how to make you comfortable and has the skills to make the absolute most of every photo she takes! I can't think of another photographer whose work I could even compare to hers - she's amazing!"

Janna Salmela

"I did a one on one mentoring day with Kari. It was wonderful! I learned so much from her and use that info every time I go on a photo shoot and edit the pictures. She teaches in an easy, relaxed manner - the day flew by. I highly recommend her!"

"Kari has done our kids' photos since oldest son's one year photos. We now have three children (our oldest and two year old twins)- and adore her work. Her patience and creativity in working with the kids is amazing, and regardless of conditions (weather, children's moods, etc) she always manages to capture their spirit and personality. She recently photographed a friend's wedding and did a fantastic job. Aside from her beautiful eye and talent for photography, she's wonderful to work with and has outstanding customer service, which is just as important to me. I couldn't recommend her more highly!"

White Bear, MN - You have a gift - you capture the the whole person. I love how your photos evoke emotion, you capture who I know my children and grandchildren to be.
