Senior year in high school is an exciting time for students! As your child takes the leap from teen to adult, commemorate this special milestone with senior photos you and your family will treasure for decades to come.
Celebrate your graduating senior with a portrait session that shows off his or her personality, taken in-studio or on-location in the greater Minneapolis area.
In-studio senior portrait sessions include photos on backdrops for the yearbook, cap and gown, or black drape photos. We have a few locations outdoors at our studio that provide some foliage and seasonal color, and we can take some pictures outside during the same session, weather permitting.
On-location sessions are taken at the Wayzata Depot or the Landscape Arboretum and do not include any photos on backdrops, but are a good choice for those who only want outdoor images.
Kemmetmueller Photography offers both indoor and outdoor senior portrait sessions. We have various backgrounds to choose from in our studio and several locations around the property for outdoor images of your graduating student.
Schedule your senior portrait session enough in advance so that you and your high school senior have time to plan out their outfit(s) and get any needed haircuts or styling. Be sure to have the subject rest well and hydrate before the shoot, to keep skin looking its best. Blemishes can be retouched in the final images, so don’t stress too much about acne.
Our photographers suggest solid colors instead of bright and busy patterns. Senior portraits should reflect your teen’s personality, so avoid overdoing it on makeup hair styling. Matte or translucent makeup photographs better than a lot of shimmer or sparkle.
Consider any props you want to include that symbolize their time in high school, such as a musical instrument, letterman jacket, or hobby items. Feel free to bring additional outfits such as cheer uniforms, sports jerseys, or prom dresses.
Expect your senior portrait appointment to last about an hour. Think about how you want the result to look and feel. Make sure to communicate this with your photographer so they know who your student is and how best to make that come through during the scheduled time.
Finished images are available for in-person viewing and ordering just ten days after the photos are taken. Our staff will help you choose the best way to showcase your new portraits.
We have multiple options to best fit your needs. The cost of your session includes the photographer’s time and talent. Additional product pricing can be found below.
