As mothers, it’s safe to say that some of our most treasured possessions are family photographs. New babies, family milestones, special achievements, momentous occasions: we love the opportunity to beautifully capture these memories. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when looking back on the photos of your squishy newborn, or that first picture of your new family of three or four. Rochester MN Moms Blog is pleased to provide you with a guide to Rochester area photographers. It is our hope that this resource will make it easier to find *just* the right photographer to capture the memories you make!
…photographs open doors into the past but they also allow a look into the future. —Sally Mann
Located in one of the oldest remaining buildings in downtown Rochester, Fagan Studios was founded by Shawn and Michelle Fagan 13 years ago. Trained as Photojournalists at South Dakota State University, they worked for newspapers in SD, UT and IA where their job was to tell a story with a photograph. They strive to this day to tell the stories of the families they work with by capturing authentic art filled portraits. When not standing behind a camera, Shawn and Michelle can often times be found on the sidelines of a soccer field, cheering on their two sons, Lucas (13) and Jonas (10).
I love that sweet smell and the way a newborn arches their back. I love watching a mom stroke their babies soft hair. I laugh every time I see a dad throw their child high in the air. I love seeing grandparents connecting and the anticipation of a graduating senior. I know babies, I can safely handle newborns, I get that kids are kids and I will deliver photos that capture them all as they are. I have over 12 years of experience working with families of all shapes, sizes and colors. I’m a mom too. I get it.
