I know most people aren’t already thinking forward to senior portraits and hiring a senior photographer in Minnesota, but you should be! Most photographer’s summers book quickly and a lot of them offer early bird or spring specials. I am one of those said photographers! I am running a early bird 50/50 special. If you book your session before June 1st (session can take place anytime in 2019) you will get $50 off your session fee and $50 in print credit for a total savings of $100!
Since I have a new website I am having to update all of my sessions and put them up on my new blog. I did this session a couple years back in the St. Cloud, Sartell area. This was Andrea and she opted for a shorter session and we still got a ton of amazing pics. Can you say gorgeous?! She has such a classic movie star beauty look to her.
We did her session at Bend in the River Park in Minnesota in the fall. Fall light is my favorite and I pride myself in being able to use it creatively in my sessions. Do you see how her hair is rimmed in golden light? This isn’t by mistake, I seek out pockets of light that create the most beautiful golden rim lighting. I have perfected this method in the ten plus years I have been a portrait photographer, and you will see it consistently in my work. I think beautiful golden backlight really adds to an image and I prefer to do shoots on days when the sun is shining. Although I am also a fan of a good old stormy sky too.
I absolutely adore when seniors want to incorporate props or pets into their sessions, with pets being my very favorite. I know some photographers don’t like the added challenge of an unpredictable pet, but I think it is so important to capture them in photos too. Pets play such an important role in our lives, why not include them?
I wish I had included our family dog in my senior portraits! I have had seniors include their cars, pets, books, headphones, vintage luggage, all sorts of fun creative things.
