Katie Raivala Photography Come on in and share your thoughts about what is on your mind. While you are here, take a break from daily life and enjoy some beautiful photos. Cloud, MN.

My approach is natural. I create beautiful environments and let your hearts take over. I encourage the real you to show through by backing away from giving you a lot of direction and posing ideas. Instead, I wait to see how you react with each other and the environment. This creates pictures that reflect who you are and shows the emotions that you are feeling. I am located in St. Michael, MN which is minutes away from Minneapolis and St.

In the blink of an eye Dalton grew up from 2 years old to 18 years old (at least in my mind). He was all smiles, which is exactly how I remembered him. I am so thankful that I got to spend time with him again and was able to photograph this big moment in his life.

Have a wonderful Senior year Dalton!

I had the pleasure of hanging out with this Senior not once, but twice (we were rained out the first session). I am so glad that we had the extra time together because it made the second time so much more fun.

Just a little snipped of who Nathaniel is.... I joked about climbing a tree and before I could finish my thought, he was already up the tree and smiling away. I was super impressed by how quickly he can climb!

Have a fun Senior year!

We had a little bit of rain and a little bit of sunshine for this Senior's session. It just meant extra time to hangout to chat and to pet one of his pups. ❤️

Have a great Senior year Ethan!

I have been blessed enough to watch this beautiful girl grow up. And I couldn't be more proud of her. I keep looking at these photos and flashing back to when she was little. She has changed in so many ways, but her kind heart has stayed the same.

Enjoy your Senior year Sammie!

This guy right here.....

He already knows what his future plans are after high school. He will be off to the Guard after graduation next year. I am so incredibly proud of him and the direction he is taking.

I think that Caroline has the best hair flip that I have ever seen. It is seriously impressive.

I really shouldn't be surprised. All around Caroline is impressive. She has a caring heart that is always helping others. She is definitely a light in this world.

Enjoy Senior year!

I got to spend a whole evening with Ellie. We talked about college dreams, soccer, her trip over seas this past summer and so much more. It was a great time.

Trenton is the definition of a hard worker. When I asked him what class he was looking the most forward to his Senior year he answered by saying "OJT" (on the job training). Yup, this guy gets High School credit by going to work. How awesome is that?! His efforts show. He recently purchased a sweet new car.

I was so excited to see this girl again and to spend the evening photographing her. Sydney is a jokester and is full of happiness. It is always fun to be around her.

This tank represents this Senior's past and future. He use to visit this tank when he spent time with his Grandma. There were many special memories made on it.

Recently CJ finished basic training. After graduation next year, he will continue his training and work with tanks.

Senior year is just a stepping stone for this guy. He has big plans and the determination to make them a reality.

I loved the adventurous spirit of this Senior. She asked me to meet her at the family farm. I was so excited! We wondered around the farm taking photos and then hit up a few other spots. The session ended after a few photos in a small river bend. It was so much fun!

Thanks for spending the evening with me Cara!

I love this couple soooooo much! They laugh together, they look for ways to make each other happy and they are all about their family and friends. Life is going to be filled with many blessing for these two. I just know it.

I was super excited to see Matt again. I bet he was like 12 years old the last time I saw him. Time flies. Now he is a Senior in High School and is looking forward to the start of hockey season.

I got to cruise around town with this Senior recently. He is usually lighthearted and joking around. That totally came through in his images, but so did his intensity. It was fun to see this different side of Ben.

It is always so much fun to hangout with someone that I haven't seen in years and to get caught up. This young man has been busy with choir, swimming and taking PSEO classes. His schedule sounds pretty busy and super exciting.

Have a great Senior year Dain!

Meet Tony! His wit is sharp and his jokes are clever. It is always a good time hanging out with this guy. (Especially when he shows up in one of my favorite cars).

Thanks for hanging out with me Tony and for letting me check out the Subaru!

It was a blast walking around town photographing this Senior in the wee-hours of the morning. I was able to hear about colleges, the Sting Football team and so much more.

Thanks for waking up early and hanging out with me Jon. Hopefully, I will be able to watch a game this fall to cheer you and your teammates on. Go Sting!

Give me an "E". Give me an "L". Give me a "K". Give me an "S". What does that spell? ELKS. Go ELKS!

Jack's session got off to a quick start. We had only a few minutes to snap photos on his stomping ground before an event started. I am so thankful that he was willing to run around with me to grab the photos quickly because the images pop.

Afterwards we relaxed and strolled around a local park getting to know each other.

Jack- Thanks for spending the evening with me. Have a great football season!

This Senior is a runner. A 5k is a walk in the park for him. I am kinda jealous- not going to lie.

It was so nice to wander around this park talking to Jake. He is so polite, friendly and genuine.

Jake- I hope that your first day of Senior year was great.

This guy makes me laugh with amusing stories. I never know what he is going to say. He keeps me on my toes (literally and figuratively because is waaaaay taller than me).

I hope that you had a great first day of your Senior year Aric Randolph!

Let me introduce you to Lucas. He is a believer in the term "No duck left behind" at his local feed store. No need to feel sad for the lonely duck that isn't purchased because it is living its best life with Lucas and his family. And in case you are wondering...I now want a duck after hanging out with Lucas and his brace (I think that is what 2 ducks are called).

Enjoy the the last few days of summer Lucas! Give those ducks a treat for me.

The sun was working its magic during this Senior's session. It backlight her hair (and hat) in almost every image making her look angelic. In my mind, that fits her perfectly so I was happy when the sun helped me capture that.

Emily- I hope that your first day of school today was fabulous! Keep reaching your goals!

I got to meet this beautiful Senior recently. She is a photo obsessed person just like me! Needless to say, I got lost in the moment and before I knew it; it was almost dark. It was so much fun photography Katie!

I feel like I could make a long list of cool things about this Senior. He runs, drives a sweet car, is smarter than smart and so much more.
