This stunning session with the sweet Miss Sophie passed too quickly! She is an easy-going and confident girl, so the session for her senior pictures was destined to be 2 hours of fun. She also has an action-filled schedule, spending most of her time either at school, work and volunteering, so we fixed a date for her shoot weeks in advance. That gave us plenty of time to plan the perfect session for her senior photos.
During her pre-shoot consultation we talked about her interests and hobbies and how she wanted her senior pictures to look. It’s always my goal to give each senior a unique photo shoot that portrays their personality accurately. Sophie loves drinking coffee, so we made sure to include a Starbucks in the outline of her shoot 🙂
We also discussed location and outfits: there are many beautiful locations in and around the Plymouth MN area. Sophie, a Wayzata High School senior, chose downtown Wayzata, a great town that has the glistening Lake Minnetonka, a picturesque park at the end of the beach, the train tracks leading past the depot, the Wayzata Depot gardens and of course the pier right in the middle of the town.
With her mom’s help Sophie got her outfits, hair and makeup looking pristine and gorgeous. During the photo session she was a complete natural at looking relaxed, happy and confident – something that makes my job as her senior photographer so much easier! I think you’ll agree that her senior pictures are a stunning reflection of a beautiful and self-assured young lady.
We moved to the end of the beach in Wayzata and spent some time at the Depot. The light was golden and the wind was blowing…. we couldn’t have asked for better weather. On top of having an amazing choice of places to shoot in, the fall colors were stunning and complemented Sophie’s outfits beautifully.
Back to the pier in the center of Wayzata – no surprise that I’ve seen many wedding photographers here shooting couples. We still had some time left so Sophie quickly put together another outfit. Just love her choice of boots!
I feel so privileged to have been Sophie’s photographer for her senior pictures. I wish her all the best in her senior year at Wayzata High School – it’s a time full of preparation, anticipation and excitement. I can’t wait to see where Sophie’s journey will take her: wherever it may be, may it be filled with fun, friends, laughter and coffee!
