What to do in NE Minneapolis on the Day of Your Boudoir Session

Your boudoir session day starts with professional hair and makeup and an opportunity to get settled in the studio. Then we’ll move into your empowering photoshoot with unlimited outfit changes and as many breaks as you’d like. You’ll leave feeling proud and amazing. While I edit your photos, you’ll go on an afternoon adventure, and then return to the studio later that day to see your portraits. I’ve had a lot of clients lately ask me for suggestions about what to do during their afternoon break. There are so many lovely options for your afternoon adventure right in the NE Minneapolis neighborhood, and I’ve compiled my favorites in this post!
