My portrait sessions are designed to be not only professional, but easy-going and fun as well. My goal is that you enjoy every aspect of your senior-portrait experience.
Sheila Mattson Fine Art & Photography is a custom portrait studio. I am involved in many types of photography, so to sustain a high level of artistic quality and client service, I limit the number of sessions I offer each year.
I have a studio located on Cedar Lake between Prior Lake and New Prague, Minnesota with many beautiful gardens and lake views. Additionally, I have access to over 600 acres 5 miles south of Prior Lake for photo shoots. Both locations offer many options and a measure of privacy. There are also many local parks and a few urban locations that would work well for photos. If you have a location in mind, let me know. Whatever you prefer, I will be happy to assist you in selecting your senior portrait location.
Depending on the location and time of year, I will almost always recommend starting your session when the sun is lower in the sky - between 4 and 7 pm. If you're a morning person, we can start at 8 am or earlier.
