Caroline is from Singapore, so it was my honor to get to take her Michigan State senior graduation pictures to share with her family since they couldn’t be there for her graduation. Every time I take MSU grad photos, I recommend getting a mix of traditional senior graduation photos with cap and gown and some with a simple dress (typically white or green in the fashion of MSU). The photos without cap and gown offer you more timeless photos of yourself that you can use for years to come (think profile photos, LinkedIn headshots, etc.).
Think of the cap and gown photos as the photos to be framed to commemorate the moment, and the photos without cap and gown are there to keep handy when you need a great photo of yourself.
While Michigan State senior grad photography is the most popular during the two weeks leading up to and the week after graduation, I highly recommend taking them a little later in the year to avoid the crowds (up to 45 minutes at each landmark location). And for those graduating in the winter, fall graduation photos on MSU’s campus are always gorgeous.
