Minneapolis MN, Senior Photos: When Should You Schedule Your Session?

Time to think about Minneapolis MN Senior Photos

It’s fall, and you know what that means!! Back to school time. You’re about to get a ton of time back. Or, if you have kids involved in a ton of activities… let’s just say: I’m sorry.

But what back to school also means, is it’s time to think about Minneapolis, MN senior photos for the class of 2024! That is, if you haven’t already started thinking about it. Every school asks for yearbook photo submissions at a different time, but whether they ask in October or February, it’s going to happen. And your teen is going to need pictures (that aren’t a boring selfie!!) to submit when the time comes.

So… when should you book their session?

Let’s get down to brass tacks. The first thing you need to do, is check with their school and see when they ask for submissions for the yearbook. It’s September, which means for some schools… it might be soon.

And you’re going to want the final edited images from your teen’s session BEFORE that deadline, otherwise… it’s standard run-of-the-mill picture-day photos for your kiddo. Which arguably isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it doesn’t make for as much fun for your teen.

And that might sound terrifying, if you don’t have a session on the calendar yet, but fear not, my friends!! Because the turnaround on my sessions are specifically designed for this situation!!

So when should you book their session? As soon as possible, of course.

BUT – I’ll get your photos back to you within 24 hours of their session!

Senior photo sessions are just like my standard portrait sessions as far as turnaround time. Which means, you get your proofing gallery to choose your favorite images within 24 hours! There’s no waiting around for the full editing process, no sitting on your hands. They have their session, and the NEXT DAY you have a proofing gallery to look at with them.

And in our instant-gratification culture… not to toot my own horn but it makes things way easier.

So you might not be as far behind as you think!!

Once you’ve chosen your favorite images that you want final edits for, it only takes a few days to get you the final versions of those photos. And since pictures are submitted to the yearbook digitally now, you don’t have to worry about waiting for prints before you can send their photo to the school (or they can! That works too) that way it can be checked for wardrobe etc.

I like to make things EASY

For me, EASY is the name of the game. If you’ve worked with me before, you know exactly what that looks like. But in this situation, the turnaround we’d be looking at for your gallery definitely makes things WAY easier on your end!

Basically, the tl;dr for this post is: when should you book your teen’s professional senior photos? ASAP. Like, yesterday. But if you’re a little behind on the game? We can solve that problem for you too.

Minneapolis Senior Photo Sessions start at $550/5 Images, with the option to upgrade. Just reach out and I can get you a custom quote for what will work best for you and your teen!
