{Alexa and Avary} Senior Portrait Session | Princeton High School | Minneapolis Senior Photographer

Hello! I am super excited to bring you Alexa and Avary on the blog today!

Alexa and Avary are twins if you hadn’t guessed! They are seniors at Princeton High School and are members of the Class of 2019. Alexa describes herself as compassionate, fun and outgoing. Avary also describes herself as outgoing, along with funny and driven. Both are amazingly beautiful, inside and out! They are both involved in many extracurricular activities, including the National Honor Society and on the Student Council. Alexa is also a member of the Cross Country and Track teams, while Avary is involved with SADD and on the Prom Committee.

After a couple of cancellations due to weather, we were able to meet up just after school started last fall. The twins decided on three locations, Downtown Anoka, Henry’s Woods Park in Rogers, and Otsego Park for the golden hour sunset. The weather was extremely warm and windy!

We started off in Downtown Anoka, where we took some great urban shots. Alexa liked this location because it was “edgy” and had a lot of cool architecture and scenery.

I take a lot of seniors to Downtown Anoka in the summer and fall. This is one of my favorite locations. It is so versatile. So many different types of brick backgrounds. It has a heritage-type feel and look to the downtown area. There are also some great parks and the beautiful Rum River Dam.

We then headed to another popular area for families and seniors, Henry’s Woods Park in Rogers, Minnesota. The location has a great red barn, along with a beautiful bridge over a stream tucked back in the woods. It is by far my favorite place to shoot in the fall!

Alexa chose to accessorize her wardrobe with a great wide brim hat to go along with her dress. She was looking for a natural and fun look!

I asked Alexa how she would advise someone else on how to prepare for their senior photo session. She responded:

Pick your outfits out ahead of time. Also, have a back up date because you can’t control the weather!

Avary’s advice was similar!

Choose outfits that would work well with the scenery you want!

I couldn’t agree more! From Moments to Memories helps with this as well. I have several blog posts on how to prepare for your senior session, from outfit ideas to accessorizing. I also have a Senior Client Guide I will provide when you book with us. You can follow us on Pinterest for lots of tips on preparation as well!

Avary was also going with a natural look, more so to show who she really is. She based her accessories off the look she was going for. Very natural and simple. All of the above made for some amazing images.

We then headed to Otsego Park in Otsego where the golden hour sunset lighting was spectacular and made for some gorgeous backdrops! Both girls are beautiful, and the lighting only added to the ambiance. Avary wanted photos in a grass field, and they were gorgeous!

Avary’s overall senior photo experience?

Good! It was a little warm, but it was better than rain!

How about Alexa?

I enjoyed it. It was pretty warm out, but overall was very fun!!

The girls will be attending college in the fall. Avary will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where she will major in Marketing; Alexa will be going to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where she will study Exercise Science. Both girls have a bright future ahead of them!

Best wishes to Avary and Alexa with all of their future plans!
