Carlson Studio of Spicer to close its doors

Yesterday Carlson Studio of Spicer made the official announcement that its 30-plus- year photography business will come to an end as of May 31, 2015. Marti Carlson has been photographing graduates, couples, kids and families for years and is a well-known local favorite.

As someone with a photography background myself, I can personally vouch for her skills behind the camera. Carlson Studio has “unofficially” been known as the best photography business in the area for as long as I can remember. Marti took my childhood photos, senior pictures, and several family shoots as I grew up. She’ll be missed!

That said, there is a small silver lining

Before the studio closes for good, it’s offering MAJOR deals on files from old sessions!

Carlson Studio deal

If you’re from the area, you know that Carlson Studio is known as a higher-end photography business. Its current special, though, is a steal! From now until May 1st of this year, you can purchase digital files from any session prior to 2012 for $50. For older sessions, negatives can be purchased for just $25. On top of that, each additional session that you buy is only $15 each!

Kandiyohi County is losing a great photographer this year but I, for one, am excited to check out some of the old files from my family’s past sessions and relive memories long forgotten.

You can receive updates from Carlson Studio on its Facebook page, or call 320-796-0096 for more information. The studio is currently located at 176 Progress Way in Spicer.

Best wishes to all those who’ve been involved in Carlson Studio – you and your talents will be missed in Spicer and the surrounding areas!
