Senior Portraits

Hey fabulous high school seniors and parents! Today, let's step into the enchanting realm of senior portrait photography – a canvas where your personality, passions, and aspirations take center stage. As your go-to senior portrait photographer, let me share why styling your session is more than just choosing clothes; it's about crafting a visual narrative that reflects the essence of your high school journey.

Capturing Moments, Creating Heirlooms: Senior Portraits as Timeless Reflections

In the lens of my camera, I don't just see faces; I see the vibrancy of youth, the dreams of tomorrow, and the individuality that makes each senior shine. Senior portraits are more than just a snapshot in time; they're a celebration of your unique story, encapsulating this pivotal chapter as you transition into the next exciting phase of life.

Style Your Story: What to Wear for Senior Portraits

High school seniors, this is your moment to express yourself! Consider your senior portrait session as a visual storytelling platform. Choose outfits that resonate with your personality and interests. Whether it's your sports jersey, the outfit you wore during a memorable performance, or a chic ensemble that screams 'you,' let your style shine.

Don't be afraid to experiment with different looks, from casual to formal, to showcase the various facets of your personality. The right attire not only adds visual flair but also captures the essence of who you are at this transformative moment in your life.

I work with all my senior clients to design a mood board. Pinterest is an amazing resource to find and build a broad of al the looks you like, looks that capture YOU. Although I do not encourage directly copying another look, I strongly recommend creating an overall look a fell for what you want. This will help us style wardrobe and location to create the best possibly images.

Location Matters: Crafting Your Visual Tale

Your senior portraits should be more than just photos; they should be a reflection of your high school journey. Consider locations that hold sentimental value – the school grounds where you created lasting memories, a favorite hangout spot, or even an urban backdrop for a modern twist. The setting is the backdrop to your story, enhancing the overall narrative of your senior portraits.

I shoot all over the metro area, and occasionally I set up travel shoots that are a little further away. Saint Anthony Main, Minnehaha Falls, Northfield, St. Louis Park, orchards throughout the area, Stillwater, Whitetail Woods, and Lebanon Hills are just a few of the options. Hot Sam's in Lakeville is even a cool place for some funky and fun shots! Prefer a studio session, we can do that too!

Why Styling Matters: The Alchemy of Photography

Styling isn't just about looking good; it's about feeling good and showcasing your authentic self. When you're comfortable and confident in your chosen attire, it translates into powerful photographs that radiate genuine emotion. Styling adds a layer of visual magic to your senior portraits, turning them into more than just pictures – into pieces of art that capture the spirit of your high school journey.
