Sophia is my very first senior for the Class of 2024! I was so excited to get my senior season started and meet Sophia and her mom. I always have my seniors fill out a questionnaire before we meet up, so that I can get to know them a little bit and also, so I have some talking points during their session. It helps making what can be a nerve racking situation for the both of us. Sophia’s answers for the question, describe your personality. She answered with sweet and goofy. And that definitely showed up during her session.
You’ve found the perfect photographer for your senior session, you’ve booked a date with them and spent time figuring out the perfect location for your session that speaks to you and your style of what you want your session to look like. Now the hard part, choosing what to wear. It is a HUGE decision that can make or break your senior portrait session! If you wear something that you don’t feel confident in, or that doesn’t photograph well, it can ruin this amazing experience for you. So, here are some great tips on what to wear to help you feel confident and that photographs well.
This year’s senior class has created so many fun opportunities to be creative as a photographer. I’ve done sessions with cars, sports equipment, fun props like wands and light sabers. For Quinn’s session it was planes! It was so cool to head to the small airport in Lakeville and use a small plane for some of his photos!
Also, this is my first winter senior session. And as you all know with Minnesota weather in general, it is unpredictable sometimes
I love this tradition I’ve started of going back through all the sessions I’ve done in the past year. It’s fun to remember all the families, couples and seniors I’ve had the honor of photographing this year. This year’s sessions was full of new adventures including new shooting locations, seniors with sports equipment, cars, wands and instruments. It was so much fun growing in this way, of adapting to situations that I haven’t encountered before in the 5 years I’ve been in business! I am SO grateful for each and everyone of my clients this year for allowing me to capture these memories for them!
What an adorable family!! I mean, look at how cute they all are in their coordinating outfits! I just love the little pops of color from dad, Gerrad and little Adalyn’s dress. 😍 I was afraid that with most of the colors from the trees being almost non-exsistant this late in October, that their outifits would blend in, but they didn’t. I feel like stood out more with out the extra colors from the trees and it probably helped that it was an overcast day.
I just LOVE the outfits that the Daly family showed up for their downton Farmington family session last month. I loved how it is very chic and would look great on Christmas cards. I’ve done a few senior sessions downtown Farmington before but never a family session and it was so much fun with Marie and her menfolk.
I’m nearing my final set of senior sessions for this fall and I’m getting a little sad. 😢 Greyson was one of the last couple of seniors I get to photograph this year, and I just did not want my senior session season to end.
Jaden’s session at Whitetail Woods started off not so great. He and his mom got lost on the way to the park, and got his car, that he wanted in pictures, full of dirt. But that didn’t sour his attitude for the session, which was good because I would have been so flustered and angry!
The weather for the Simmon’s family session at Whitetail Woods could not have been any better. We have been truly blessed with great weather this fall, I don’t think I’ve had to reschedule any sessions yet due to bad weather.
I’m so excited to share this sweet little family from Farmington, Minnesota family pictures with you all! The Cook family is new to the area and hadn’t had a family picture in 6 years, especially since they added a new member to their family, their adorable pup
