Megan Morgan Photography: Free Mini Session

For this year’s holiday card we wanted to capture the Visit Minot team in a festive photo. Upon hearing recommendations, we decided to use local photographer, Megan Morgan (Megan Morgan Photography) to take our Christmas photo. We couldn’t have been more happy with the experience and how the photos turned out. Our Mini Season took place at a secret location in Minot complete with rows of beautifully decorated pine trees.


Megan Morgan has been living and working as a photographer in Minot, ND for 3 years now. She is a mother of three, military spouse (which has allowed her to reside in 7 different states), and originally from Portland, Oregon. Her love of photography dates back to her high school years and she takes pride in creative and time capturing moments. She specializes in on-location and in studio portraits of newborns, children, and families. To see more examples of her work, feel free to visit her Facebook page or blog.

I found out in October I have stage 2b breast cancer and have been going through chemo and would love to capture this chapter in our lives with my bald head and have some kinda fun with it rather than just so scary. Thank you !!

    I would love to capture some special moments between my daughter and husband before he leaves for deployment. She absolutely loves her daddy and runs to the door saying hi when he gets home and it will be so hard to explain to her why her daddy isn’t home. This is our first deployment since having our daughter and although she is very young I know she will notice he is gone. He will also be leaving right before our 10th anniversary so it would be great to have some pictures to celebrate this milestone. I plan on getting a big print of A and her daddy to put in her room for her.
