I had the pleasure of shooting some senior portraits in and around downtown Minneapolis with a great young lady. It was a perfect, Minnesota day in the spring. This portrait session was great for a number of reasons:
- beautiful young lady, very stylish, who was comfortable in front of the camera
- she had an awesome wardrobe
- she was looking for original, one of kind photos
- Minneapolis is full of unique locations
- the weather was perfect, with a slight breeze
But enough of me, rambling – again… on to some photos! All photos posted are SOOC.
The first location was a grungy railroad tressel. It was sweet! The contrast was awesome!
The sun made for the best lighting too…
We went down by 1st Avenue & Hennepin in downtown Minneapolis after an outfit change and took some really cool shots by a really cool wall and old alley. Check em out!
Before we left though, I had an idea. See if you like it…
Then back to the her condo for the last outfit change and up to the rooftop. Check out the view of Minneapolis! Again, another contrast – between her & her flowing dress and the sharp angles & brick buildings.
and to finish off the shoot, there was this wall that provided a nice matching color, along with contrast, texture and of course, the senior.
I definitely hope to do more senior portrait photography in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. I look forward to it!
