I can’t believe it’s already time to start scheduling Michigan State senior portraits again.
A year ago, Jeff and I went to HopCat in downtown East Lansing to celebrate his leap year birthday. I wrote in my “One Line Every Day” Journal that week, “Watching coronavirus news.” At the time, we still hadn’t seen any cases in Michigan, and it still felt like a far off threat.
Less than two weeks later, MSU shut down, and seniors lost the rest of senior year. We all hoped that 2021 seniors would have a more normal experience, but here we are today.
Some of my Michigan State senior portraits were postponed or cancelled because of complications with traveling home, but we did still manage to make some happen – and it was so nice to be able to give seniors just a touch of normalcy in an otherwise insane year. One parent put it best in an email after the session:
“They were thrilled! … They finally felt like graduates.”
In a year that was missing a graduation ceremony and one last night out with college friends, they had something to hold onto.
Michigan State Senior Portraits Are Open to Book
If you’ve spent the year near campus, there’s a solid chance that you’ve spent more time with your roommates than anyone else. I want to offer you a way to celebrate your time together. My booking calendar is open now for Spring senior sessions. Bring your roommates, siblings, significant other, or pod along to get photos together and individually to celebrate this place that has meant so much to you all.
Is There a Per Person Cost for Sessions?
Nope! Pricing is based on session length, not the number of participants. I do, however, recommend a full or extended session if you want to get photos around campus with a bigger group. We usually get a mix of group and individual photos.
Spring blooms start around the last week or two of April and last through the first week or two of May.
