Sweet 16 Session | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Senior and Portrait Photographer Emily Charais Photography

This session was a very special one for me. This girl has had my heart since the day she was born. As a parent, these milestones come flying up on you are lightening speed, and before you know it, your baby is 16 and you are clawing to keep what is left of her childhood near to your heart. I thought it was a milestone that deserved a session of epic proportions. We set out this spring in one of my favorite locations north of the Twin Cities for a few hours. She is a child of the woods, river, and nature, and it was so much fun watching her shine in her element.
