Michigan State Fall Senior Photos on North Campus

Ideas and locations for a Michigan State University fall senior photo session on north campus by Allie Siarto Photography, East Lansing Photographers.

Taylor graduates in the spring, but she loves the fall and wanted to capture her MSU senior portraits on north campus during peak fall colors (she’s from Texas and totally appreciates Michigan’s changing seasons). Taylor scheduled an extended 90 minute session so we could reach as many landmarks as possible during her session, and her mom came along to help with the puppy and other accessories.

Most students plan their senior photos at the end of April or early May when Spring flowers are at their peak (see a few examples and ideas here and here, or browse all senior sessions for ideas on my gallery page), but fall is a great time to highlight all of those energetic colors that spread across campus.

Pros and Cons for Fall Versus Spring Senior Photos

  • Fall can be a bit more windy and chilly, so it’s a good idea to bring along extra hairspray and a jacket (Taylor wore a plush green jacket over her white dress).
  • My fall calendar fills up quickly, so if you’re thinking about a fall session, be sure to book in early summer.
  • Spring tends to be very rainy, so be prepared for your session to be rescheduled in case of rain.
  • Key campus locations get very crowded in the weeks leading up to Spring graduation. You’ll likely need to bring a helper to jump in line for you at Beaumont and Sparty. I’ve seen the wait get as long as 20 or more minutes for a few quick photos. The crowds die down after graduation, and I’ve never had an issue with crowds at these locations during the week in the fall.
