THE NEXT CHAPTER


Dear upcoming graduates:

As you prepare to launch into a new world of independence after high school, I want you to know that no matter your circumstances in life - where you live, the family you were born into, what happened to you as a young child that was beyond your control - NOW is the time to step forward into your own true self and begin the next chapter of life that is truly yours for the making. 

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." ~Henry David Thoreau

It is so easy to gloss over the transitional periods in our lives and look forward to our arrival at the next chapter. But this chapter, the one right between your childhood accomplishments and your big dreams, is one that deserves to be documented in a way that's all you.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
— Steve Jobs

My Senior sessions are created so you can settle in and get comfortable in front of the camera, while expressing yourself through different outfits and locations. My goal is always to let your personality shine through :)

Senior portraits don't have to be stressful! We can have fun! Yes, FUN! No manufactured moments.  All of my on-location sessions are spontaneous and unplanned. We'll glide through your session naturally and have a an amazing time doing it! Not sure about an outfit or a location? Let's handle this process together! I am here to help! 

The following images are of a 2017 High School Graduate, Erin :)

Erin has big dreams and a bright future ahead. She has the drive and passion to become an Environmental Engineer and make her footprint on the world. For Erin's session last month we ventured around Lowertown St. Paul. As we walked along in search of unique and inspiring areas to stop and take some images we talked ... This young woman has a heart of gold and she will make a difference in this world :) I wish her all the luck on her next chapter.

Last but not least, I would say you should have big dreams, full dreams, not half dreams. You know, it’s very simple. You can’t put a large box in a small box. Well, you cannot put a full life in a small dream box.
— Elias Zerhouni
