Miranda. {High School Senior Portrait Photographer | Burnsville, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN}

I am so incredibly lucky - time after time, the neatest, nicest people find me and let me photograph them.  I am constantly delighted by the kindred spirits I come across in my job.  This beautiful senior girl and her family were no exception.  My kind of people.

It's not a secret that I love photographing musicians.  I was so excited to find out that she would be bringing her clarinet to her session.  And not only is she an accomplished clarinetist, she's the captain of the swim team.  Athletic AND musical.  And lovely, inside and out.  We had such fun together.  I love that she brought her whole family - senior portraits are an important, special thing!  

We met at my studio in Burnsville, Minnesota and had a ball trying to see just how much variety we could cram into one evening.  I think we did pretty well on that score.  ("Score!"  It's a music pun, for you music geeks out there.  OK, you ONE music geek out there... and that one music geek would be me...)

This is going to be a big share.  I loved every minute of this session!

We ventured out into the neighborhood right near the studio, and found some fun little spots:
After we finished the urban portion of our session, we spent some time in the field out behind my studio.  It was such a swelteringly hot beautiful evening out, and the light was so pretty.  
We did a few shots with her sister (beauty runs in the family, as you can see):
The colors out in the field were just amazing, and I love this series we got with her clarinet, just before sunset:
