I did my first senior session at the campus of St. Kate’s this year and loved the location! Annika was so easy to photograph!
Danielle’s senior photo session was so much fun! We started at the studio and Danielle got to experience an amazing makeover by the talented Emily Bettenga. After taking a few photos at the studio, we moved on to Como Park to take advantage of the gorgeous fall colors!

I was so busy photographing senior girls this fall that it was fun to shake it up a bit with Christian. What a photogenic young man! We did a combination session with studio shots as well as some on-location work in downtown Saint Paul. This urban location is perfect for senior guys!
Linnea chose to be photographed near St. Anthony Main on a beautiful summer evening. No wonder this is such a popular place for photography session. This area is so gorgeous! She is a competitive figure skater, so she brought along her ice skates which caused a few people to give us some strange looks. Oh well!
I love when parents of past senior clients call me and tell me they have another senior this year and want me to be there photographer again! I photographed Lauren’s older sister a few years ago and was looking forward to photographing another brown hair, brown eyed beauty. Lauren decided to have her hair and makeup done at the studio first, then we headed to Como Park, which has been a favorite location this year.

When I look at Aimee’s photos I see her classic beauty. Oh, and her amazing red hair. And it’s natural. And gorgeous! Aimee took advantage of working with a stylist before her senior portrait session. The fabulous Emily Bettenga was able to achieve two looks with her hair – more formal waves and a straight, everyday look. We got lucky with lovely evening light at Como Conservatory for outdoor photos after some work in the studio. Doesn’t she look amazing in green!?!

Jennifer was so fun to photograph! Jennifer started by getting pampered at the studio by the fabulous Melanie Rivers who used a touch of makeup to bring out Jennifer’s natural beauty and curled her gorgeous dark brown locks. Since we had to dodge some spotty showers, we decided to photograph a few of her outfits at the studio, then headed downtown Saint Paul to take advantage of the stunning evening sun. This girl is model material!
Photographing Erin was a dream! It is always fun to photograph a dancer; she was so at ease when moving and posing. I have a bolt of tulle that I keep at the studio for when inspiration strikes…and it did! I fashioned a dress out of some scraps of fabric and clamps. From the back it was a hot mess, but from the front, a romantic, flowing ballerina tutu. Erin took advantage of one of my hair and makeup artists, who did a fantastic job with her long dark locks. After playing around at the studio for a bit, we drove to Como Conservatory to finish off the session in the lovely late evening summer sun. She looks absolutely stunning in blue!
