A Minnesota Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Nicole Spangler Photography, located in Big Lake, MN.

“This session was a part of my senior model experience. My senior models were treated to hair and makeup, a wardrobe stylist who provided 3 outfit changes, and jewelry, and I also hired a videographer to capture the behind the scenes moments. This experience was like none other in my area.

I commissioned a local artist to build a tee-pee out of birch branches and canvas. She also created the custom feather headpiece.

I also blogged more images, if you would like to check it out HERE.”

Tell us about the gear used: Canon 5D markiii, Canon 85mm 1.2, Canon 50mm 1.4, reflector

What inspired this session: “I wanted to provide my senior models with an uber high end fashion experience. I knew I wanted to do boho, but with a twist. I instantly thought of “glamping”. A lot of the seniors in my area spend a lot of time doing outdoor activities, so I knew this would speak to them. I knew I wanted to include a wardrobe stylist, so I reached out to Athena with Ampersand Helen. Once she said she was on board I knew the shoot would be amazing. I provided her with my mood board and she literally made it come to life. She provided clothing by Urban Outfitters, Target, and Free People. She also provided stunning jewelry from her own collection (Mineralogy). I chose a rustic location with many different options as far as scenery. It was the perfect location to make my vision come to life.”

Hair and Makeup Artist: Emile Ann Makeup Artistry

Love this concept! And the feather piece is to die for! Planning styled sessions can be a lot of work, but so worth it in the end! Thanks so much for sharing this session with us!
