meet the photographers

First of all,  you're almost a senior  and we're ready to celebrate it! We're jealous  because we wish we could do it all over again. You've got so much to look forward to! As a team, we have been shooting seniors since 2010. We have served seniors from twelve different high schools and met so many wonderful individuals. As our photography business has grown, we still keep our roots grounded in senior photography because we know there is something special about you! The world is yours, you're hungry for success, and ready to enjoy the ride. There is nothing better than capturing a to-be-senior.

Welcome

Who We Are

In second grade, Cam sported frosted tips and Tia was rarely seen wearing no less than 6 different bright colors (unless of course it was her signature 100% hot pink outfit). The two of us were students at Jonathan Elementary, a spot where sixteen years later Cam proposed to Tia. In September 2016, we were married at Birch Hill Barn on the most perfect fall day. Our childhood friend pronounced us husband and wife, Tia’s grandma was our flower girl (flower crown and all), and we shared our first dance to “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes. We now live in the ‘burbs in our little yellow house where the sun shines through the towering trees and there is always someone to loan you sugar. We spend our time together chasing after our puppy Bella, driving the North Shore with the windows down and music blasting, or cuddled on the couch with The Office in the background planning our next adventure.

For many, the goal of senior pictures is to get that pristine yearbook photo. But with Cameron and Tia, we want to capture your lifestyle, not just the way you look. Senior pictures are the best opportunity to capture how you laugh, how you strut, and how you celebrate this wonderful time in your life.

ABOUT US

seniors

our

Our seniors prefer to play and laugh rather than fix each individual hair and place each finger. We specialize in seniors who are up for anything and eager to explore. Our seniors are soccer players, student council presidents, lifeguards, and more. The one common thread is that they are full of joy. They are unique, confident, and empowered young adults ready to conquer their senior year. Our seniors aren’t looking for a session where everything is perfectly placed and formal. They want to run in the fields, let their hair blow in the wind, and aren’t afraid to get their feet a little dirty. 

The Senior Experience

The goal with our senior experience is that it is more than a quick check of f your to do list – it is literally an experience! We provide the utmost flexibility with unlimited outfits, a customized location, and full printing rights to  the photos. There are no complicated packages to choose from. 

Investment | $500

ONE HOUR OF COVER AGE
We will play and strut so much that you will be exhausted by the
end of that hour and we will have tons of quality images that
represent all the different facets of your wonderful personality.

UNLIMITED OUTFIT CHANGES
Bring it all! We don’t restrict you to only one or two outfits.

LOCATION CHOSEN BY YOU
Choose between our three bomb locations that are all all-star choices. We know that each of these locations have awesome light, fun backdrops, and tons of variety.

ONLINE GALLERY OF 90+ EDITED, HIGH-RESOLUTION DIGITAL FILES WITH PERSONAL PRINTING RIGHTS
No need for you to purchase each image over here! You receive
your fully-edited digital images on an online gallery where you
can download them and print them wherever you please.

Advanced Retouching

With all of our senior clients, we are dedicated to making them look like the best version of themselves. In some cases, our seniors desire a higher level of retouching. Our standard retouching is included in the senior experience as we post-process your photos to perfection. But if you and your family desire a more detailed and in-depth retouching experience, you can purchase advanced retouching. This could include removal of hair flyaways, excessive acne, scar removal, or teeth whitening.

How it Works

01.

Please know that our turnaround time for your edited images is two weeks. It is your responsibility to know your high school’s yearbook deadline date (most schools send out this date in May of your junior year) and to budget in time for your shoot, the turnaround time, and time to decide on your yearbook photo before the deadline. 

02.

Dates are first come first serve and are only considered booked with a paid session fee and signed contract. We cannot consider verbally claimed dates as “booked.” Since we have sold out of Senior Experience dates the past three years, it’s important to book early to claim your spot.

03.

Though we can shoot in a number of weather conditions, should we experience inclement  weather on your session date, we have the ability to reschedule sessions for those unique cases. We block “blackout dates” into our schedule that we do not book sessions on and only utilize for rescheduled senior dates.

04.

Many of our seniors choose to get their hair and makeup professionally done and due to the nature of this, should there be a 80% or greater chance of rain during your session showing up 24 hours before, we will always reschedule the
session. We don’t want you to pay for your hair and makeup services only to not be able to have your Senior Experience later in the day. Though, with the fickle nature of Minnesota weather, we will always be in contact day of should conditions decline.

05.

It is important to note that many weather variations can produce amazing Senior Experience session results. A cloudy, cool day may not feel as awesome as a bright, sunny day, but that cloudy day will produce even and consistent lighting – which is amazing! 

06.

We are natural light photographers, so none of our Senior Experiences take place indoors, but instead, enjoying the beauty and natural light of the Minnesota outdoors.

07.

Note that though Senior Experiences include up to one hour of coverage, the total time commitment can vary due to outfit changes.

08.

Note that no matter the time of day, we strive for even lighting to make our images consistent with anything that you see here on our website. Though, the light later in the day will always appear soften and more flattering on features. If you have the availability, we always recommend choosing the latest available time slot. If a warm, golden sunset is your preference, the latest time slot will cater towards that as well (of course, pending weather that day).

After spending many summers shooting in tons of locations throughout the metro area, we have curated the best of the best for our senior clients. Choosing from  all the options in the twin cities can be overwhelming. Thus, it was important to us that we put together a variety  of options for our clients to choose from that cater to different styles, personalities, and preferences. Please note that different dates are available for different locations because we photograph at the same location (or close proximity locations) in one day. Thus, if you have a restrictive schedule with limited availability, that may dictate your location choices. If you are looking for a few specific dates, feel free to flip between multiple locations to achieve that availability. 

Locations

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is the crème-of-the-crop of nature locations. “The Arb” has fountains, gardens, a trellis, hedge paths, and mini waterfalls. We can also drive around a 5-mile-drive to spend time in a boho, wild open field. Also, on the drive is a traditional red barn with a hill where the sun turns a warm orange as it drops over the horizon.

St. Anthony Main is located right on the river overlooking the city skyline. We can pose by the river to see Stone Arch Bridge and the skyline, but also take advantage of the cute, cobblestone road winding around cafes and coffee shops. Lastly, we can hop on the iconic Stone Arch Bridge to a take your-breath-away view of the city.

Downtown Excelsior features the quaint main  street that has the hustle and bustle of a tourist town. There are many different backdrops from rich brick to colorful textures. We can also head down to the traditional dock over Lake Minnetonka that has thick rope and white distressed textures. Lastly, we can head down to the beach to mingle in the water and sand.
