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!

Mini Session SUCCESS!! (Mankato Area Photographer)

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

My very first mini-session was a great success!  Everything went smoothly and it was fun to have my friend Crystal from SnuggleTimeKnits here to be my assistant for the day too!  I can’t wait to do another mini session again!  Here are some of the wonderful shots that I got from that day.


We started out our day with little miss Ellie!  I just LOVE her eyes…

…and her adorable toes!

Next up was these two cuties!

My First Cake Smash – Mankato Child Photographer

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

I got to do my very first cake smash a few weeks ago and I think it went really well!  Little Bubba (that is my nickname for him) LOVED the cake and just went to town.  I made up this storyboard for his family and it is so cute seeing all this cake smashing and frosting mustaches!  I can’t wait to do another cake smash session!

Mini-Sessions April 21st

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

I have scheduled my first mini-session for April 21st!  Sessions will be $25 and include a free 8×10 picture.  You will be able to order more prints than that if you like.  Each session will be 20 minutes in length and will be done in my home.  It will be a great time to get those Mother’s Day gifts for all those grandmas and mommies you need to treat special!!

1 year old session – Mankato Child Photographer

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

I was lucky enough to get to photograph one of the sweetest little boys this morning.  He happens to be one of my daycare boys and I’ve been photographing him since he was a newborn.  Wanted to give his family a sneak peek of a couple shots tonight.  I will have more to share in the near future…

This was my first session that we did a cake smash with…it was such a blast!  Steven had LOTS of fun!
