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!

Cake Smash

Friday, September 13th, 2013

I know it’s been nearly a year since I have blogged and I hope that I can get better at that but I won’t make any promises:) Anyway I wanted to share some pictures from one of my favorite little guys and his cake smash session! I must say that this is my favorite type of session because it is so fun to watch them make such a mess and enjoy the cake!

Isn’t he handsome?


Look at those eyes!


He put his whole body into it!

I think this is is ‘caked-out’ face.  He’d had enough!


And this was his storyboard…I just love putting these together!


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!

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!
