Casting Call MN Photographer Photography Lakeville Northfield Edina

Hello, and happy summer!

Senior portrait session is underway in Minnesota, and I’ve got some good availability left for those who are just starting to research their senior pics photographer or who are trying to decide. Remember to check with your high school to find out when your yearbook photo is due – that will help you figure out when you should hold your session! I’ve got more answers to senior FAQs at my seniors-only website here – Salina J Seniors. My clients love having a site dedicated to their age only, without having to sift through portfolios with newborn and family photography. Check it out! Whether you live as far away as cities like Maple Grove or Rochester (maybe you’re even from Iowa or Wisconsin!) or are nearby in places like Lakeville, Northfield or Edina, I’ve got great locations to fit your vision for the perfect senior session.


Are you comfortable in front of a camera? Do people tell you you have an amazing smile, great charm, a mysterious demeanor or a unique look? I have a few projects in mind for the summer of 2013 and I’m looking for fresh faces. If you are new to Salina J Photography and would like to be featured in a photographic project as a model (I use the term loosely here – you don’t have to be a pro or even amateur model, I’m looking for real people with a variety of looks), contact me at salina@salinajphotography.com with your age, a clear photo or two (recent), general availability and contact information. If you are under 18, you must have a parent contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!


I have a few new things planned for 2013. One of them is a great referral and incentive program for my fabulous clients. You can earn points that you can use toward buying digital negatives or prints from past or future sessions just for liking Salina J Photography on Facebook, following me on Instagram, and referring me to new clients who are just as amazing as you. I’m also introducing mobile apps for certain collections – a great way to share your favorite photos from your session with me right from your phone or tablet, without having to access a separate gallery or website. And soon I’m adding a special everyday mini session for clients who don’t necessarily need a full session – it’s great for families and seniors who are looking to update portraits more regularly than once every few years, who know they will only need a few poses or who are on a budget but still recognize and appreciate fine photography.

Questions? Give me a call at 612-567-3129 or visit my contact page at my main portrait site or my senior portrait site. Can’t wait to meet you and learn about the photos you want me to create for you.



Northfield, MN Family Portraits – A Warm Fall Night

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Yes, yes, I’m still catching up with fall portraits on the blog!

Photographed this family in Northfield (repeat clients of mine – we just did Addison’s first year portraits as a cake-smash and have the next family session scheduled for this summer, I can’t wait!) on a gorgeous fall evening. The light was perfect and the kids were happy to have their photos taken. If you’re not sure where Northfield is, we’re about 20 miles south of Lakeville.

You’ll see more of this family soon!

Christina – Mayo High School Class of 2012 – Minnesota Senior Portraits

Friday, January 20th, 2012

On a blustery but gorgeous fall day I met Christina, her mom and her sister in the quaint town of Lake City, Minnesota for Christina’s senior portrait session. The wind was a bit of a challenge, but in the end I think the windblown look worked perfectly with Christina’s hair.

We took some of her portraits in the downtown area, then in a park, and lastly at the Lake City Marina. Christina loves to sail, and she wanted to incorporate her passion for it into her photographs.

The collection Christina and her parents ordered includes a slideshow with some of their favorites, so I added that after the images. Enjoy the rest of your senior year, Christina!
