Emily: Minneapolis Senior Portrait Photography

What do you get when you mix a love for nature, music and lots of laughter? PLUS a true, honest passion for life? EMILY!

Last fall, I had the privilege of meeting Emily and her Mom for Emily's senior portrait session. We spent a gorgeous windy day together, playing in the leaves, jumping, striking a pose here and there and just letting Emily be her wonderful fabulous self.

It was such an honor to meet Emily - she has such an abundant passion for life, for people and for Haiti. Emily was a "youth" in my friend Marie's church and was able to travel to Haiti with her last year on a mission trip. When I asked Emily about the black bracelet on her wrist, she clutched it and said with a beaming smile, "I haven't taken it off since I was in Haiti and I don't ever plan on it!" It reminds her of that journey and keeps her mindful of how much more needs to be done to help. There is not a doubt in my mind this girl will change the world and make it a better place for people in Haiti and here at home.

A trip in the leaves, screeching in an alleyway and pretending to conduct a musical masterpiece - here's a glimpse into an afternoon with Miss Emily :)
