{Erin} Urban Senior Session | Anoka, Minnesota | Spring Lake Park High School

Up next for the Class of 2019 is Erin! Erin’s mom, Cindy, and I used to work together years ago. I was so glad when she contacted me for Erin’s senior pictures. It was great to catch up!

Erin attends Spring Lake Park High School and is a member of the Class of 2019. She describes herself as fun, loving and energetic. Erin loves softball, basketball, shopping and binge-watching Grey’ Anatomy (don’t we all?).

We decided on downtown Anoka for Erin’s shoot, because it is such a versatile location. It really is a “3 locations in 1’”. The park is right on the Rum River, and has a lot of great nature scenery for backdrops. The downtown area also has great backgrounds, along with the feed store down the street.

Since basketball and softball are such a big part of Erin’s life, she brought her bat, glove, basketball and letter jacket for her senior portraits.

Our last spot was also in Anoka, and it brought a more rural/country setting. The feed store has great farm-like backdrops that include a red brick building, some silos, and a few corn cribs.

Erin brought a few clothing changes that went perfect with each area. She advises to be prepared and know your outfits before hand to make sure you’re comfortable. And to get your hair, nails and makeup done right before your shoot. Great advice, Erin!

Erin's advice for those preparing for their senior session? 

"Know what you want for your pictures and communicate your wishes to the photographer."

Erin plans to attend Minnesota State University, Mankato and obtain her degree in Physical Therapy.

I also asked Erin what her overall experience was with her senior session. Her response? 

"Super fun and exciting!"

Good luck in all you do, Erin! I know you will succeed in reaching your goals!
