{Seniors} Calling 2014 Seniors!!

The 2013/2014 school year has started and if you are a senior and have not thought about your senior portraits, now is the time to start.

Senior Portraits at Woodlake Nature Center

 We offer a relaxed outdoor sessions that are often as easy as a walk in the park, literally. One of our favorite places to shoot photos is at Woodlake Nature Center right here in Richfield but we also love the feel that you can get from an urban session in either of the downtowns nearby. You can tell us where you want your session done or we’d be happy to figure that out for you.

Downtown St. Paul Senior Session

You get to decide which image from your session you want for your yearbook photo and we will take care of making sure it meets all the requirements for your school’s yearbook as well as sending it in. Our pricing is reasonable and straightforward. We would LOVE the opportunity to capture your senior pictures!

Senior Session at Woodlake

 Portrait sessions are done within an hour of sunrise or sunset for best possible lighting. Contact us to set up your portrait session today!
