A Minnesota Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Olivia Smith of Belle Marie Photography located in Brooklyn Park, MN!

Here is what Olivia had to say!

Please describe the session:
I set up this session with Llaura right before I left town for a mentorship and we discussed that we would photograph at Silver Lake Park in St. Anthony and the theme was spring flowers. Llaura pretty much brought her entire closet but when I saw the cute floral dress she had I knew it would be perfect for the flower theme. We walked around the park and she was such a trooper laying in all of the flowers and wherever I asked her to go she did! She was so sweet and about as cute as could be at only 4 foot 7 inches with her big blue eyes and even bigger personality! We were laughing the entire shoot. Llaura is a 2018 senior, and just the sweetest soul.

Tell us about the gear used:
I used my Nikon D600 and 50mm f/1.4 Lens with my spider holster belt and large reflector.

What inspired this session?
I just moved to Minnesota in November, so my entire experience here has been snow and brown everywhere so I have been anxiously waiting for spring and it is finally here! So I set up this shoot so I could capture the beautiful spring colors and flowers before they are replaced with leaves on the trees.

Hair and Makeup Artist
She did her own hair and makeup.
