Minneapolis Mother-Daughter Portraits
I’ve been hearing about this family portrait session for years. No – really! My step-sister Michelle had told me for years that she wanted to have a Mother-Daughter portrait session with her daughter Lauren. Finally, she told me a couple of months ago “THIS is the year!” I was so excited! It was perfect timing too – as one would expect, the addition of a studio means that I can now photograph people at any time of year, no matter what kind of weather we are having. And of course, Minnesota is blessed with widely varied climates, so at any time we could be in the midst of rain, humidity, cold, heat or snow. My studio also has a wall full of windows, which gives amazing light most any time of day. We opted for an early December date for their portrait session.
Mother-Daughter Portrait Session
After finalizing props, lighting, and the rest of my studio set-up over the past few months, I was ready. They came in with numerous wardrobe options that we could coordinate together. And even though Lauren swore she would never be seen in a dress again, she agreed to wear not just one but two. They were both awesome! After they worked with my hair/makeup artist, we spent time to photograph each of them alone and then the two of them together. I captured them in 5 different outfits. Before we knew it, we had spent almost two hours together.
Image Viewing and Ordering Session
Mo and Lo came out to the studio for their Image Reveal Session about two weeks later. They were thrilled! Even Lauren, who vowed to never wear a dress again, really loved seeing herself in her beautiful outfits. She chose a number of her dress photos as her favorites.
Michelle + Lauren, I’m so happy that you hired me as your family photographer! I can’t wait to see the final photos in your home!
