Luke. {Senior Portrait Photography | Twin Cities, Minneapolis St. Paul, MN}

I got the best email about two months ago.  A wonderful mom was looking for a senior photographer for her son.  She'd been shopping for awhile - there are a lot of fabulous photographers in the Twin Cities, as we all know - but wanted something specific for her son, a violinist, and through the miracle of Google she finally found the photographer who's work she wanted.  When she clicked on the "about me" page, the person looking back at her turned out to be an old classmate, friend and music colleague from college!

Seriously, what are the odds?

You can imagine how excited I was to get that email.  It had been a long time since I'd seen this terrific lady, who I remember as a top-notch flutist and a funny, engaging and smart person.  Our senior year of college at St. Olaf, on choir tour, she and I performed a huge piece for soprano, flute and choir at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, among other places.  Such great memories we have together, and when that email came in, they came rushing back with so much joy attached.

I say all this not to toot my horn or anything, but to marvel at this wonderful world we live in and to celebrate the way that kindred spirits are brought together when we need each other.  How amazing.

Anyway... she has a son who is as equally amazing, funny, talented and engaging as she is (no surprise there) and what a riot it was to do his senior photos!  He brought his violin and his wicked sense of humor along.

We shot this session in and around my photography studio space in Burnsville, Minnesota and we had a great night for it.
