We started off our Class of 2019 sessions with Megan. We had so much fun with her and her mom near St. Anthony in Minneapolis. My daughter, Baylee, came along and assisted us with some behind the scenes fun!

Megan is a senior at Elk River High school and is a member of the Class of 2019. Her extracurricular activities include hockey, lacrosse and tennis. She is also a member of the National Honor Society. Megan took advantage of our split-session services and chose summer and fall sessions!

Megan was looking for a natural, outdoors look, but wanted an urban feel. Her and her mom chose Boom Island Park and the St. Anthony Main area of Northeast Minneapolis. I had shot in St. Anthony before, but not at this location. Boom Island Park was also a new location for me!

We started at Boom Island Park. I was disappointed that the walking bridge is closed for construction until further notice, however, we found lots of good spots. I was not able to get down to the park ahead of time to check it out, but Megan's mom did and had some great ideas for locations within the park. Megan loved the location, and I added it to my list!

There is a nice little bridge and a lighthouse within the park, with a great view of the Minneapolis skyline.

Megan had her hair done at Adagio Salon in Rogers, and did her own makeup. She is such a stunning girl!  Megan told me her biggest fear was how the weather was going to be, but it held off for us!  She brought some fun sunglasses that we incorporated into her session.

We then headed down a few blocks to the St. Anthony Main Restaurant district and the 8th Street Bridge.

Her overall senior photo experience? 

It was great! I still have one more session in the fall, but I had so much fun at my summer shoot!

After high school, Megan plans to play hockey in college and major in education.

We cannot wait for her fall session!
