Celia {Twin Cities, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Stillwater Minnesota} Senior Portrait Photographer Emily Charais Photography

Class of 2016 senior Celia came to me from across the border in Hudson, WI!  She is such a classic beauty and I enjoyed my session with her so much!  Celia is an incredible athlete.   I’m told she is a shark on the tennis court, and a great soccer player too.  Celia told me she picked me because my sessions are relaxed and totally not awkward, and our session was no exception, we had a blast!  She was so sweet and had such a natural calm about her.  Celia had a LUXE session with hair and make up done by the fabulous Sarah Elizabeth Artistry.  We had ideal conditions in Minneapolis with perfect weather, perfect light, and perfect wardrobe.  This is one of my favorite sessions ever, and I hope you enjoy it!  Please leave her a comment, a like, or a share to let her know how amazing is!  Senior sessions for summer and fall are almost completely booked up, contact me ASAP for your own session!
