Lyndale Rose Gardens

Right by Lake Harriet, this area boasts wonderfully kept flower gardens, ornate sculpturing and beautiful fountains all a short walk from the local lakes. I have done senior photos as well as portraits here and it is wonderful! Check these out:

Lake Calhoun

One of the most popular lakes and parks in the twin cities, I love to shoot in the pass between lake Calhoun and lake of the Isles. It has amazing color and character that is immediately recognizable in the cities. This is one of my favorites:
