Family Portrait Time! | Minnesota Family Portrait Photographer

Do you have a senior going off to college? Be sure to schedule a family portrait. Yes, we know you have about a million other things to do, but you will never regret capturing your family in this season before your child leaves the nest! You’ll want that last family portrait with just your children….after this, the next family images could be at their weddings! From that moment on, you’ll have new family members in your photos. A timeless photo of your family unit right now, as they are, is a beautiful and lasting memory.

As a mom myself, I can testify that I wish I had taken more professional portraits of my own family…I miss the days when my boys were young, now that they are grown! Below, I’ve included some examples of the kinds of family photos that Remember Me Photography has taken recently. Many of these were turned into paintings before framing or made into gallery-quality, wrapped canvas pieces. No matter the season or type (formal or casual) of image you are dreaming of, we can achieve it! Contact me today to book!

Kendra | Class of 2017 | Minnesota Senior Portraits

In light of our recent patriotic holiday, I am happy to share this cute senior session, where she wore shades of red, white and blue!  Kendra is from Chanhassen High School, and will be graduating in 2017. She is one of the sweetest girls ever, and is part of her high school dance team.

She picked a few different off-the-shoulder looks for her session, which has been a theme for a lot of my seniors this year! The feminine and stylish look of off-the-shoulder tops is a fun and beautiful way to beat the heat during hot summer months! Plus, you can show off your summer tan! We love this blue off the shoulder romper that would be perfect for any pool party or brunch! Rompers are so cute! The off the shoulder or “cold shoulder” style also looks perfect in cream or white, and paired with denim cut-offs. We like this version from Macy’s.

BOOK NOW! Mention that you saw Kendra’s collage here and I will give you extra proofs to choose from at your own session!Kendra proof book

Georgia and John | Engagements | Minnesota Couples Photographer

This pretty bunch of bright blooms, and the pink, beautifully wooded area we found were just about perfect. They looked made for this sweet couple. I loved being the photographer for this couple: John and Georgia. These high school sweethearts are head over heels for each other, and have been together for six and a half years. Their wedding is coming up, at the American Swedish Institute, a stunning historical mansion and museum/cultural center.

For their session, we met up at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, which is simply stunning. It boasts over 1,100 acres of horticulture gardens, filled with annual and perennial blooms, and natural areas like woodlands and marshes. You could spend days in the lush greenery and florals that this land offers! For us, it was just the backdrop we were hoping for to celebrate this couple’s love story. Congratulations, Georgia and John! If you’re interested in an engagement session, please contact me here.

Helpful Tips for Business Headshots and Corporate Portraits

We all know that first impressions are everything, and for many people you will interact with in the corporate world, that means your first impression is a photo. Whether it’s on your blog, profile, or business card, a photo can be your first foot forward. That means you want a portrait that captures who you are: polished and professional! A blurry, amateur photo does you no favors…consider your photo your personal branding, and show your very best self. Here’s a few tips to make your headshot incredible:

-Choose a professional outfit in a classic cut and look: You don’t want to look dated within a year, so choose pieces with a classic feel. Make sure it is tailored well, and try bending and moving in it to make sure it appears great for portraits.

-Steam or dry clean/iron your ensemble: Wrinkles show up in portraits, so be sure to steam or press your outfit, including collars and sleeves/cuffs.

Recommended attire:  For men: a dark suit or sport coat, light-colored shirt, and tie. Clothing with tight grids or a small herringbone pattern can have a moiré pattern effect on camera, please avoid them. Thin stripes are okay. For women: a dark suit coat and contrasting blouse or darker colored dress. V-necks accentuate the neckline and are most flattering on women. Avoid turtlenecks, they tend to make people look like they don’t have a neck in photos.

-Keep your jewelry simple and classy. We want the focus to be on you!
I will use lighting, posing, and of course, Photoshop to help you look your best!

Congratulations to the Class of 2016 Graduates!

As the Class of 2016 prepares to walk across that stage and receive that very hard-earned diploma, I wanted to wish them a big congratulations! Not only is this group of seniors smart, kind, and athletic, they also are going forward into the world to do amazing things. The seniors below are heading off to serve our country in the military, to achieve new academic milestones at Ivy Leagues, Engineering schools, and continuing their athletics at college, as well.

You might be wondering what part a senior photographer plays in the final year of high school. I hope that the photos I hand over to each senior and their parents will always remind them of the celebrations and milestones that the year held. They may forget my name, but I will never forget their smiles and hearts, and I hope that they will always treasure their senior photos!  I’m so proud of these 2016 grads from Chanhassen, Chaska, Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Shakopee, Waconia, Holy Family, Benilde St. Margaret, and Minneapolis South. I wish you all nothing but happiness and success!
