About Focused Photography

Hi all...my name is Misty! I am a mother, wife and major multi-tasker. I enjoy baking, making and building. I am always busy with some project...just ask my husband! I have enjoyed photography for as long as I can remember but only recently has it become a passion.

I am an on-location photographer serving the greater Mankato area striving to capture the true essence of a personality when I take pictures. I am not all about the perfect pose or the perfect smile...that is not what makes a photo perfect. I look forward to capturing memories that will stay with you forever!

Sweet Baby Autumn – Mankato, MN Newborn Photographer

Friday, January 20th, 2012

This is my first post on my new blogsite and I am so excited that it is for this amazing family!  I met Autumn’s mom, Angie, through facebook because she is the Executive Director of an organization called Lasting Imprint.  Lasting Imprint is a “non-profit corporation established by individuals committed to fighting congenital heart defects by funding research, helping families and educating communities” and since I have a son with a heart defect it is great to connect with others who do as well.  At the time we set up the session I did not realize it but her daddy, Ryan, is also in the Army.  He was lucky enough to be home for the birth of his baby girl but had to leave not long after.  We got some great shots with daddy’s gear!  Also, turns out Ryan is a hunter and wants to meet my hubby and do some hunting with him so maybe my hubby will have a new hunting buddy when he gets home.

Autumn’s parents are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met.  Grateful and kind.  It was so great getting to know them over the few hours we spent together.  I am so happy to have met them and their beautiful little girl!  Congratulations and thank you Angie & Ryan!

I am absolutely thrilled with the results of this shoot.  I am still learning SO much each time I do a shoot and look forward to MANY more!
