A Minnesota Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Olivia Smith of Belle Marie Photography located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Here is what Olivia had to say about her session!

Please describe this session for us:

“This was such a fun session, I really wanted to get out and play in the city with one of my girls. The city doesn’t change much so as long as it is a nice day you can always take photos and it looks relatively the same most of the time. Its really the architecture and twinkly lights that I am drawn to. This session was only about an hour but with my pop up changing tent we got through about 4 different outfits and stayed within about 2 blocks for the entire shoot. You can get so much variety in such a small area and I love it!”

Tell us about the gear used:

Nikon D600, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, Spider Holster and hand strap, large reflector

What inspired this session?

“I wanted to get out and have some fun not really having a concrete plan for outfits or what exactly I was wanting to get. I just knew I wanted to shoot this particular block in the city that I have been meaning to get to for months but have never made it to till now. It was pretty empty to, all the restaurants were closed and we had the block pretty much all to ourselves. It was very peaceful and an easy session and we got so much variety in under an hour. It is always fun to just go and explore not having a plan and just wanting to create something beautiful with whatever you find when you get there.”
