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

Joel. This guy is one of my favorite clients. We have worked together so often that our sessions just flow without effort. There is something about our artistic minds that just mesh. We are both perfectionists that are also laid back, which makes it all fun and easy going while we are holding ourselves to a really high standard at the same time. It is exciting and peaceful. I was so excited when Joel came to me for his senior portraits because I have only worked with him as a dancer, and I wanted to explore the portrait side of my work with him. We had an incredibly fun session, and I look forward to sharing his senior pictures with you all.
