Minneapolis Senior Pictures
Today I am highlighting Maia’s beautiful Minneapolis Senior Photography. I worked with Maia at Silver Lake Park in St Paul on a beautiful early fall day. Take a look at some of the beautiful photos we created that day!
Why Senior Pictures?
One big question many people wonder: why would we have senior pictures taken? School pictures are a yearly tradition, often happening right inside the school itself. Now forward to the last year of high school: it’s a time of tremendous life transition. Often times, seniors will soon leave home for colleges or jobs away from home and/or out of state. They become adults making their way in the world. Senior portraits celebrate that monumental transition.
Professional Senior Pictures
Working with a professional photographer means these portraits are not just standard school portraits under bright lights with generic backdrops. These portrait sessions can be held in a wide variety of locations that reflect the senior’s interests and personalities. From urban industrial scenery, to natural park settings, and anything in between. They can even bring props that reflect their interests, such as musical instruments, sports equipment, dance outfits, pets, etc. The sessions are around 1.5 hours or so, giving time for a variety of posing, locations, and even a wardrobe change or two. The time also allows for the senior to become more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. This gives his/her personality a time to shine!
Senior Picture Benefits
Another major benefit of having senior pictures taken is the end product. You get more than just one final pose in front of a dull backdrop. You receive a wide variety of images, from full-length to closeup, from walking to sitting to standing, laughing, smiling, etc. With those images, you can find your favorites. From there you can create an endless variety of heirloom artwork. Our seniors and their families have purchased numerous artwork options. Some include albums showcasing all of their favorite images from their session, matted gift prints for family, smartphone albums, wallet prints, and even wall art.
All in all, senior pictures are an important part of life for a family celebrating the senior’s transition in life. If you are looking for a Minneapolis senior photographer, please contact me soon so we can discuss working together!
