John {High School Senior Photography | Twin Cities, Minneapolis St. Paul, MN}

You need to remember this face.  This guy is only 17 but already he is an accomplished opera singer (cellist, too!).  If only pictures came with sound - you'd hear the ring of a legitimate bass-baritone, and you would love it.

He's also an expert at hand-tying bow ties.  He did not one, but two separate bow ties at his senior session.  I don't often have seniors bring tuxedos to their sessions but this gentleman did (and he looked completely at home in it).

This day was a rare, warm, lovely day in the middle of a pretty un-spring-like spring.  It was so amazing to shoot outside and not get a frostbitten "trigger finger!"  Add to that the wonderful company, laughter, and conversation (I don't often get to talk opera at my senior sessions), and I will admit that I had a pretty perfect evening.  I'd not met John or his mom before the session, but at the end of the night it felt like we'd known each other always.  I'm so happy to have done these and met some kindred spirits.  (And I'm so grateful they made the long trip down to Burnsville from Stillwater!)
