The best time for colors is mid-October but you can hold your session, any time before November 1st. Christmas begins November 1st and it's also open for booking.
Thank you for your support.
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.
Birthday, milestone and seasonal sessions are $60 for a 30-minute session and $90 for one hour.
There are also sessions for seniors and family 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 for $10.
There are no sales sessions, you don't have to pay anything in addition to your session or agonize over 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.

As always, Mandy at Richfield Portrait Photography did a fantastic job! Every single one of these pictures was downloaded straight from her camera onto my flash drive… not a single edit made, not even a crop. I’m blown away every time I get home and see the results of her amazing eye. I know posted a LOT of pictures lol.. but these are probably only 1/4 of the ones that I wanted to save! I just couldn’t narrow it down anymore than these.
"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!"
"You are such an amazing photographer that I have a hard a very time choosing the photos that I need a little touch-up on."
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 includes one quick outfit change. Siblings are welcome.
Quick and Easy - $50 for 15 minutes. For those wanting just a couple of photos.

I have six maternity gowns available to wear in black, white, blue, burgundy, green and gold. There would be time to try two or three gowns.

This is what it is all for - travelling the world.
Below is a link to my fine art website and as many penguins as you can handle!
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.
If you have never been introduced to the perils of the photographic mini session, read this!
It gets pretty loud around here, and it is often chaotic, but we love the silliness, and we laugh a lot. However, the studio is a place of work so anyone running, throwing things, fighting or swearing will be spending some time benched on the stairs. If I have to chase your kid up the stairs or break up fights that takes precious moments away from your session. I have thrown families out for lighting fireworks and other crimes, and I am not afraid to do it again.
Tantrums and tears are allowed to run their course. Usually, we wipe away the tears and move on. Don't feel bad if your two-year-old flings themselves on the floor, it happens every day and I often feel like doing it myself. Don't think your kid is the baddest kid in town, someone else's kid is always worse.
Don't underestimate the effect COVID had on some kids, especially the little ones. If it's not too busy I am happy to go 10-15 minutes over your 30-minute session free of charge if someone needs a few more minutes. If your three-year-old is shy or is uncomfortable being around strangers it would be best to book a one-hour session.
If your child has special needs, such as ADHD, please, please tell me beforehand. We can schedule you for the last session of the day, so we won't feel rushed. When you make your booking, let me know what kind of quirks your little one has so I am prepared!
If the little person is absolutely distraught you pay on the day, and I will give you a gift certificate for a free session. Often the second time around is much easier.
Bribes are very much encouraged. Bring something for the kids and for dad. Make sure everyone is well fed and well rested. Don't be surprised if the cooperation bribe you offered your four-year-old to get them out the door, is instantly forgotten when they walk through my door. Be prepared to make a second, more lucrative deal. If you do make an upgraded bargain, don't hand it over until they uphold their end of the deal. Half-eaten suckers make purple tongues and when removed from their tiny, sticky grip it often results in a hysteria we may not recover from.
Please arrive on time, there is never a slow day, and the schedule is often packed.
I understand a perfect smile is a priority for most but sometimes the smiles don't come. We record who the little person was on the day..tired, ticked-off, overwhelmed, sad or shy.
Try to avoid too much black when you pick your outfits.
If you are running late or something happens at the last minute it's ok, just send me quick text on 612-368-2161 otherwise I will be sitting in my basement all alone wondering if you are ok.
Payment is due on the day and can be check, cash, PayPal or Venmo.
