Kids Photography Testimonials

“We could of not had a better photography experience then we did yesterday with Mike. We took our 2 year old daughter for her Birthday pictures, She was a bit tired and apprehensive of wanting to sit and get her picture taken. Mike was great at trying to get her comfortable showing pictures on his phone of Disney characters from his recent trip to Disney World. She was having a hard time letting go of mommy and daddy.

Mike was so nice and accommodating that we took a break went home for a nice nap and came back in the afternoon with her cousin who showed her how it was done.

She had so much fun and we got amazing photos that make it so hard to choose which one is the best.

Mike and Joannie are always very helpful, caring and passionate people (they both photographed our wedding). They do a wonderful job and we love going to see them and always know we will have a lot of great pictures. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We have been with Mike for years and will continue to use him for our daughter and more children when the time comes.”

“We’ve gone to Michael & Joannie for almost 10 years now for engagement, wedding, and family photos, and have LOVED what they’ve come up with every time!! Best photographers, absolutely!!

Their portraits and videos are always beautiful, and even if a kid is having a tough day, they have a magical way of getting great images anyway! It’s true!

Our whole family loves working with them, very knowledgeable, fun, and sweet! I highly recommend them, you will absolutely be happy with what you get!!”

“Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures you capture. I’m so grateful to you for that. So many times I’ve tried other photographers, but no one does as good as you.

Kids Photography by Michael and Joannie Anderson

Michael Anderson has been in love with photography since he was in 7th grade. “The older I get the more I realize that photography is in my blood. I can’t imagine my life any other way” Michael says.

For more than 28 years Michael and his wife Joannie have been perfecting the art of bringing the best out in their subjects and making them look wonderful.

Their number one goal is that you have fun while being photographed.

You can’t look great if you are not relaxed and enjoying the process of having your portrait created. Michael and Joannie have the unique ability to adapt to the personality of their subjects.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a newborn baby (one of Michael’s favorite portrait sessions), a rambunctious 2 year old, a feisty teenager, the complex dynamic of an extended family, they can create beautiful and meaningful images of every age group.

Michael says, “I just love to be with people and Joannie and I have been very blessed to have been entrusted by so many families to create their family history in portraits.” “I have the best job in the world!”

The Anderson’s are available for portrait commissions on location both nationally and internationally as well as at their Mounds View, Minnesota Portrait Park and Studio.
