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!
If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves. -Maria Edgeworth
Marit Williams Photography
I love capturing the fleeting moments. As a mother myself, I know they come and go all too quickly. Those first few years of your child’s life, yearly portraits of your growing family and all the memorable milestones between – are here and gone before we know it. And that’s where I come in. I want to capture those moments, bottle them up and allow you to savor them now and in the future. I love shooting in locations where you shine – somewhere natural, simple and effortless. Somewhere that warms your soul and allows your family to be the focus.
Marit Williams is a wedding and family photographer serving the Rochester and Minneapolis, MN area. Contact Marit to learn more about her packages, availability and to discuss your family photography vision.
I love the way a newborn arches their back when I pick them up to snuggle under my chin. 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 high school senior entering their last year of high school. I know babies, I can safely handle newborns, I get that kids are kids and family photos are stressful. I will deliver photos that capture them all at their best and sometimes in the real moments that you know best. I have over 13 years of experience working with families of all shapes, sizes and colors. I’m a mom too. I get it.
What makes us different from the other photographers? You mean besides our refusal to not have a latte in hand and our obsession with Disney? It’s probably the fact that to us, our clients are names, not numbers. Quality whoops up on quantity in every area of our business. Ask around and you’ll quickly hear that our clients are spoiled! Family bonds inspire us, in both our own family and in yours. We want to capture kiddos playing with Mom, running from the Tickle Monster (aka Dad) and belly laughing for no reason at all. These moments won’t last forever and we take honor in freezing them in time for you. We’d love to hear from you to start locking in those memories.
Whether we’re photographing a 5-day-old baby or a graduating senior, we strive to capture who our subjects are in our work. We want to capture their personality, we want to capture what they’re about, we want to capture a memory of who they are right now. Fagan Studios is about way more than just taking a photo, we want to create art of our clients, we want our clients to FEEL the portrait, not just see it.

Nicole Mills Photography
As a photographer, my hope is that I can help every girl & woman I photograph recognize and appreciate her beauty…not in what is “perfect” about her appearance, but through what it is that makes her a beautiful person; her strengths and weaknesses, her vulnerabilities, and her confidence. I hope you’ll put your trust in me to photograph you and your loved ones in a manner you’ll find to be respectful and meaningful. I want this to be an experience to remember, and I want to provide images you and your family will treasure forever. I offer both indoor & outdoor sessions in and around the Rochester area and I specialize in timeless portraits of girls & women of all ages.
