• I'm Lisa, a portrait photographer located in Central Minnesota. I started Lisa Sherwood Photography in 2010. It's simple...I love what I do and It's important to me to make my sessions a wonderful experience for all my clients. I'm married to the love of my life and we've been blessed with 4 little people who simply amaze us every single day! Right here is where I will post my latest sessions and life's little happenings. Thanks so much for stopping by, Enjoy!


I am excited to announce I am now offering In person Mentorships on a limited basis for 2016. Be sure to read all of the information below to make sure this is a good fit for you. Due to limited availability these are on a first come/first serve basis.
Are you a hands on, see it and learn it kind of photographer? Have you been looking for a way to break out of that shell and find new inspiration? I would love to help and guide you. I provide a couple of options below to make it easier on you. First let’s answer a few quick questions…
What is in person mentoring?
We will meet at a location discussed ahead of time. This is a place we will sit, eat and just get to know one another in an informal and intimate setting. I am an open book. You can ask questions. We can chat it up while you learn just how I work, how I think. We will discuss how I approach a session, my thought process and how I prepare for my time together with my clients. How I make it a special experience and get them to open up to capture the most intimate of moments. This experience is about you so I want you to prepare questions and ask anything and all things you can dream up.
We then will have a LIVE shoot with either a newborn, child, family or a model and we will shoot together. Yes! This is hands on. I want you to shoot. I want to help you with everything from composition, light, camera settings, client interaction and more. The sky is the limit. You can ask me anything! This is NOT a workshop. It is not meant to be rigid or structured so this is based around you.
Do you do One on One Mentoring?
Yes! Or you can bring a friend and save just a bit while increasing the fun factor! Are there distance limitations?
As long as you live approximately 50 miles outside of the Morrison County area you are absolutely fine.
When will you be booking these?
Mentoring dates for 2016 are open now! The dates will close when we reach around five mentorship dates or the end of the Fall. We will work on the date together after the retainer or mentorship is purchased. I am flexible! How long do we get to spend together?
There are two great options:
Half Day / FOUR hours: Perfect if you have lots of Questions (Can be business or Photography related) + Shooting +  Processing
Sounds good and want more details??
Read Below:
1:1 (Just me and You)
Two Hours: $350
Includes:  Session at a location prearranged. I coach and guide you through the session. We shoot, we laugh and have fun! It’s awesome. This only includes shooting and doesn’t cover business option.
Half Day (Four Hours): $700
Includes: Warm up time and questions before we get shooting. FOOD. Yes, we get to eat. We meet at a pre-determined restaurant before heading to our location. I mean what is better than eating AND chatting about photography? Arranged FULL session that you are welcome to use for your portfolio.
Bring a Friend – Only valid for the Half Day option.
2:1 Mentoring Half day option only $600 per person. (Double the fun and Save!)
Now here is some prerequisites.
I recommend you have a thorough knowledge of manual mode. Since the sessions can move quick sometimes and we are going to be busy, busy… a mastery or your camera settings will get you the most out of this mentorship. If you are just starting and looking for more basic camera knowledge or help that doesn’t run along the business lines we can dedicate time to that instead otherwise but make sure to specify up front so I can plan for you.
Unless otherwise arranged, you must come to the Morrison County, Little Falls, MN area for these mentorships.
You must be prompt so we get every last drop of awesome out of our time together.
Non refundable. Half of the full investment due at time of booking and the remainder due 14 days before time together for the Half Day. The 2 Hour Mentorship is due up front at time of booking.
How Do I sign up??
Easy!! Just shoot me a message with your choice of either June, July or August, Sept, or October and Half Day or the Mini Option and I will send an invoice. Once the invoice is paid you are on the books and it is officially a date!

Please Note: Payment and retainer are rolled into one for your convenience. If opting for the 2 hour mentorship option entire balance is due up front to hold your spot since there are very limited time slots. There is no distance restrictions on this Mentorship except you must not be in the Morrison County/Little Falls area. We meet and eat first and then head to the location to meet the client or model, but this is only included in the half day option. We will meet directly at the session location if you are booking the 2 hour option. A questionnaire will be sent roughly two-three weeks before our time together to get better acquainted. All Mentoring is non refundable. Dates are weather permitted, if there is poor weather or an act of God that prevents our original date from happening a follow up date will be provided.

I look forward to meeting you! You can contact me by phone 320.232.9672 or email: mail@lisasherwoodphotography.com



It was a cold winter day and we hadn’t gotten snow yet so we decided to brave the weather and head down along the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River. Here are a few images from the session!
