Dominick | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Senior and Dance Photographer Emily Charais Photography

Dom.

This kid.  He is one of a kind.  Not only is he a brilliant dancer, but he is truly one of the nicest, most grateful people I’ve worked with…which is why it is so much fun to get to photograph him over and over through the years.  I am so proud of Dominick for how hard he works to become a stronger dancer every day, but also for how respectful and supportive he is of others.  He plans on moving to NYC to pursue a career in dance next year, and I will miss having him in front of my camera.  Enjoy Dom’s session, and be on the lookout for the second half of his session when it warms up.

Austin | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities, Stillwater, Minnesota | Senior Portrait Photographer Emily Charais Photography

Austin.

This guy and his parents were just a joy to spend an afternoon with this fall.  Austin is a snow sports loving guy, and was really excited that fall was wrapping up, while I tended to love the colors of the moment a little more than how cold our session was.  We wove through the town of Stillwater, laughing most of the time.  Austin is a senior at Andover High School this year, and was such a gentleman.  I really loved getting to know him and wish him the best of luck as he finishes up his senior year!

Levi and Blake | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Engagement Photographer Emily Charais Photography

Blake and Levi.

These traveled for a long time from Georgia to Minnesota, and their love stole my heart immediately.  A good friend recommended they contact me for their nature based engagement session, and it couldn’t have been a better pairing.  The result is such natural, lovely, fun portraits.  We photographed in a secluded location north of the Twin Cities in a place that is close to my heart personally.  Filled with birch trees and gorgeous neutral grasses, our location was perfection for these two.  The light, their wardrobe choices, and their willingness to be alive with each other made this a perfect engagement session!  The cutest part?  They brought along their puppy Veil for the session.  She is named Veil after a wedding veil because Levi used her to propose to Blake.  How precious is that?  Please enjoy!

Addisyn | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Stillwater, Twin Cities Minnesota | Senior Portrait Photographer Emily Charais Photography

Addisyn

This girl was a girl after my own heart.  She was so laid back during our senior portrait session this fall in the beautiful town of Stillwater, MN.   Addisyn is a senior at Lac Qui Parle high school, and trekked all the way into the cities and north for her session.  She lucked out with her session date, because it just happened to be the last weekend the fall colors were on FIRE!  I had such a wonderful time with Addisyn hiking up and down the streets, finding the perfect unique places to use as backdrops.  I am so happy to share Addisyn’s gorgeous senior portrait session with you!

Bella.

This session was so beautiful.  The fall colors exploded just for Bella, who LOVES fall.  We lucked out and had to reschedule to our session date, and the whole world treated us to brilliant fall colors.  I loved Bella’s style.  She had the cutest glasses and nose ring, and her hair and makeup done by Sarah Elizabeth Artistry rounded out her Luxe session perfectly!  Please enjoy Bella’s senior portrait session!
