Alivia | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Dance and Senior Portrait Photographer Emily Charais

After photographing her sister earlier in the season, I was really excited for our turn late summer in downtown St. Paul. We took advantage of the many textures and backdrops available in this 2 block radius. The cobblestone streets and lovely buildings are always some of my favorite elements to play with in this location. Alivia is a gorgeous ballet dancer with lovely lines and really wonderful energy. Please enjoy some highlights from her session!
