Abby {Minneapolis St. Paul Stillwater Minnesota} Teen Headshot and Dance Photographer

My first session of 2014 was a pretty darn amazing one if I do say so myself!  Abby is an up and coming dancer from just outside of Minneapolis.  She is incredibly sweet, a total stunner, and took on our very, very cold winter session without blinking an eye.  See, she is a Minnesota girl, and they are just a little hardier than the rest.  Mix in her flawless skin, amazingly cute freckles, and dance abilities…well, she is going to go places in life.  Her dancing and attitude is full of grace, and gentle confidence, and I am so honored to have taken her head shots this winter, and look forward to another round in the summer!

My dance and head shot sessions are FULL of variety, because let’s face it, head shots are an investment for performers, and I respect that so much.  I want to provide the best bang for your buck by giving you a fully styled session, with modern classic head shots to show for it!  Please enjoy Abby’s session, and feel free to leave her a nice compliment at the bottom…she deserves every nice word you can throw her way!
