Studio Photography – Ham Lake Location

Darling Savannah visited my Ham Lake photography studio back in January for her last portrait session as a 3 year old. (This little lady is now a spunky 4 year old!) Her bright smile and playful personality lit up our studio. She's at the age when everything is fun and it's so easy to laugh. She reminded me of what I love about photographing young children. They see sunshine in the world even on the cloudiest of days. And they are always happy to share. We just need to sit still long enough! Book your child's photo session ›

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!
