Welcome To Richfield Portrait Photography!
Hi All. My name is Mandy Stadther and I am owner-operator of Richfield Portrait Photography.
For nearly 10 years and 8000 mini sessions later Richfield Portrait Photography has delivered quality, creative and affordable family photography.
Session fees start at either $50 for a 30 minute session and $80 for one hour for birthday, milestone or seasonal sessions.
There are also sessions for seniors, family and pets as well as headshots and maternity sessions. Check out the menu above for more information.
The session fee is all you pay for all the photos we took. I put your images on a USB which you take home with you or you can buy a USB from me for $10.
There are no sales sessions, you don't have to pay anything in addition to your session or agonize which photos to have.
Cash is the preferred method of payment.
I would be happy to make simple edits for up to 10 photos for issues such as newborn rashes, pimples or little drools.
The session fee is per household.
Although I keep things pretty simple, there are plenty of backdrops and props. I have more than 100 backdrops, many fake cakes and cupcakes, things to sit on and ride as well as many seasonal props.
The sessions are held in my fully equipped home studio in Richfield. There is a bathroom for changing and plenty of places to sit.
The studio is two miles from the Mall of America.
"We love Mandy at Richfield Portrait Studio! She has tons of backdrops, props, necklaces, and costumes. She's amazing with kids! My toddler warmed up to her much faster than with many people. She takes great pictures and you can't beat her prices!"
"She was wonderful! Pictures turned out amazing! She went above and beyond for my family! My granddaughter is very shy and she let her explore her surroundings to get comfortable. The background set up was perfect and she even followed my granddaughter around to get those perfect candid shots. I absolutely will be coming back for ALL my future photography needs."
"Mandy is amazing, fantastic portraits at unbelievable prices."
"Mandy is the BEST!"
"It was great experience we did get some great pictures in-spite the kids being fussy. She was very patient with us. WE LOVE HER!"
Birthday and Milestone Sessions.
Your pride and joy, well most of the time anyway! These sessions are for the sitters, crawlers, walkers, talkers, movers and shakers. I try to make it entertaining for us all, it's amazing what a bunny puppet and a candy bribe can do.

This whole thing with photography started 40 years ago.
Over the years I have hoarded and made many props - here are a few. I have dozens of birthday hats, tutus, bubblegum necklaces, fake cakes, hundreds of headbands.
