Julia – St. Paul, MN Senior Pictures

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Julia attends a small private high school in St. Paul. We lucked out for her session held in late April – our beautiful, warm day was tucked in between some cold and less-than-gorgeous evenings. Here are some of the favorites from Julia’s session. Are you searching for a photographer for your senior pics, class of 2014? Contact me today to talk about details, then we’ll get you on the calendar! I have some exciting specials and offers for this summer and fall.

Alex – Class of 2013 in Snowy St. Paul, MN

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Alex is a student at St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts, and he and his parents wanted a senior portrait session that would reflect his musical side as well as use the downtown area as a backdrop, as a reminder to where Alex spends so much of his time.

Yes, it was cold. Yes, there was snow on the ground. But we Minnesotans are hardy and Alex never let it show if he was freezing. We moved through skywalks and along sidewalks and I chose some great spots with wonderful light. The first image of Alex of his guitar was officially my first favorite senior picture of 2013. As soon as I clicked the shutter I knew it was spectacular, and I was right – Alex’s parents ordered it as a 16×20 canvas and it was stunning!


Minnesota class of 2014 students – it’s not too early to start thinking about who will take your senior pics!

Now that it appears the snow is gone for good (finally!) it’s time to start thinking about summer and what to wear for your portraits. Can’t wait to hear from you!

Graduating Class of 2013 – Not Too Late for Senior Pictures!

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Hello, Class of 2013!

You’re winding down your senior year, counting the days until high school is over, getting ready for your graduation party and warmer summer months.

If you still need senior portraits, it’s not too late! I’ve been doing sessions for other seniors in your graduating class all spring, with more coming up. Maybe you didn’t have time to get them done last fall, maybe you didn’t like how the first ones turned out, maybe you were waiting for your braces to come off. No worries – give me a call at 612-567-3129 or write at salina@salinajphotography.com and I will get you scheduled. It’s ideal to have the session at least 4-6 weeks before you need to send your grad announcements, but if it’s sooner than that, we can make something work.

I look forward to hearing from you! Enjoy these last few months of your high school career.

{Are you a member of the Class of 2014? If you book before the end of your junior year, you will get a discount on your session fee, so contact me today!}

Be Mine – Valentine’s Mini Sessions – Lakeville, MN Photographer

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

I am so happy to announce the dates of my first mini sessions of 2013 – the “Be Mine” Valentine’s Day mini sessions to be held January 25 and 27 at my studio in Burnsville, Minnesota. So wherever you live in the Minneapolis and St. Paul Twin Cities area, you’ll be able to get to my location easily! My studio has a big parking lot and elevator access to my floor in case you’re pushing a stroller (or just have kids who really like pushing the elevator buttons).

I have some Valentine’s-themed backdrops and set ups for your children, but if you’re not into red or hearts, I can also use something simpler. Mini sessions are a great way to update your kids’ portraits, create gifts for family and classmates or just to get your first taste of custom photography at a very special price point not offered with my full sessions.

Mini sessions are for children (siblings) only. Expect 25 minutes of time photographing the kids and a gallery with at least 10 images. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase fun add-ons like custom Valentine’s Day cards or mini albums and I’ll be sure to have some special treats available, as well.

Openings for these mini sessions are limited so call me at 612-567-3129 or email me at salina@salinajphotography.com today to book yours! I look forward to meeting you and your little sweethearts.

Boys and Their Dog – Lakeville, MN Family and Pet Photographer

Monday, December 10th, 2012

This family came to me wanting photos of the two young boys and also the family pet dog, Newman. Ryder and Brady are busy, active kids and used to running around and refusing to sit still, but for our session they rewarded their mom’s efforts at wardrobe organization by giving me some beautiful, natural looks.

The black and white image was recently ordered as a 30×30 canvas to go over the family’s mantel in their two-story living room. It’s an amazing piece that the boys’ parents will treasure forever (and probably look to in moments of yelling and shouting in years to come, to recall the serene moment we captured).


Are you thinking about family portraits? I’m happy to accommodate requests for pets – I’ve done sessions with dogs and horses so far. And no temperature is too cold as long as my clients are comfortable – there is no rule that family portraits must be done outside between June and October. In a few weeks I’m photographing a family of five outdoors, and it will be fun to include a Minnesota feel to the portraits with the weather. I am now taking reservations for all photo sessions through May of 2013, so contact me today to get on the calendar!
