I absolutely love working with teens and dancers.  I am a kid at heart and understand this age group so much, and that makes our sessions so much fun and relaxed.  I respect their individuality, and am so passionate about creating senior, teen, and dance portraits that really highlight who they really are.  I spend a lot of time during their session getting to know them, and gearing their session toward their specific personalities.  My clients tend to be the smartest, driven, most talented teens in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area (no, I am not biased).  I have photographed concert violinists, artists, actors, scholars, ballerina’s, and pianists.  My clients like to travel the world.  My clients seek me out to have senior and teen portraits that not only highlight their talents, but are classic and cerebral like they are.  I really *get* who these teens are, and want to show the world how amazing they are!  I am so proud of my unique client base, and enjoy getting to know each one of them personally, and seeing them grow into really amazing people!
