Christmas Mini Photo Session - Children's Photographer in Ham Lake

Soon to be four year old Lexi was so sweet! She couldn't wait to have her photo taken.

Michael is a spunky two year old and was a lot of fun! He loved playing with his fire truck and my studio's model train.

Outdoor Portrait Photography at our Ham Lake Photography Studio

Being a one year old heartbreaker isn't easy! Just ask this classic little guy who looks like he just stepped out a scene from "The Notebook". I had such a fun time photographing this sweet baby outside our Ham Lake studio. He has a smile that can melt anyone's heart! Book your baby's photo session ›

Officially Official – Jacqueline Blake Photography in Print!

Jacqueline Blake Photography Business Cards OMG - I am so excited! Today I opened my mailbox and there was little brown package from Vistaprint. There was something about ordering my first box of Jacqueline Blake Photography business cards that made me feel really, truly official. Like I have arrived and I'm ready to play with the big girls. It's even my design! I was so jazzed to flex some of my graphic design muscles - diving into Adobe PhotoShop sometimes feel meeting an old friend. This business adventure is truly giving a chance do what I love and I'm grateful for all the support I have had from my family, my friends and everyone who has let me in to capture some of their family's precious moments. Today is definitively a great day!

Open for Business – Jacqueline Blake Photography

So here it is... The beginning of Jacqueline Blake Photography. Right now it's a "low-fi start-up" which means one camera, one backdrop, two lights, a tri-pod and a great deal of heart and high hopes. I have a small studio in my unfinished basement that with any luck, will grow into a polished and professional portrait business. How did it all start? Before switching my college focus to web design, I was majoring in photography. I was accepted to the Art Institute of Chicago but a few weeks before leaving for school I met a guy who I fell head over heels for. I only lasted a month in Chicago... I had to come home to him. I didn't have a back-up plan for a photography degree in MN so I quickly decided to go to school for graphic and web design. That guy I fell for asked me to marry him a of couple years later and now we are a happy family of four living in Ham Lake. I've had a successful career as a web designer/developer and digital marketer but have always had the art of photography tugging at my heart. So now it's time to follow my heart back to the beginning... And start a new adventure! Wish me luck!
