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


This girl has girl next door written all over her.  She is a sweetheart with a killer smile.  She is a determined girl that worked hard for our session.  She is a talented dancer with beautiful extensions and legs for days!  We had such an amazing time during our Luxe session this summer.  Hair and makeup was done by Rachel Schmidt Beauty at my studio in North Loop Minneapolis.  We started our session in the city, but ended with the most amazing sunset wrapping us up among the gardens and flowers.  Butterflies were everywhere and the light was special and dreamy.  Please enjoy Dana’s senior portrait session, and contact me to book your own session with me!  I still have 2018 availability!
