Senior Portraits

Senior Portraits at Anderson’s

Whether you’re looking for creative senior portraits in a studio or outdoors, we have you covered. At Anderson’s, we’ve got a fully equipped indoor studio and our very own outdoor Portrait Park.

Senior Pics On Location

We also take many of our high school senior pictures on location too! Some of the Twin Cities senior photo locations we’ve worked at are the downtowns of Anoka, Stillwater, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. The Saint Anthony Main area in Minneapolis is a favorite senior photography spot.

Senior Photos on Lake Superior

We’re also very well known for our annual “North Shore Portrait Weekend” on Lake Superior every year. In 2017 alone, we had six high school senior photo sessions “up north”!

Green Screen Senior Portrait Composites

In the last two years, we’ve started creating green screen senior portrait composites. So far, we’ve had several hockey players (both boys and girls), golf, baseball, and dancers too!

Good Lighting For Great Senior Portraits

If there’s one thing that bugs us the most, it’s poorly lit portraits of any kind, not just senior portraits. With that in mind, we’ve built our very own light-kit on wheels. We call it Lightning McQueen!

We’ve used Lightning McQueen for Twin Cities senior portraits from Minneapolis to Stillwater. This portable lighting vehicle delivers exceptional lighting for our high school senior portraits.

Our Seniors Are Special

The thing that I like most about using Lightning McQueen is the attention that our seniors get when we’re walking around with him. It’s like having a mini film crew and it makes them feel special.

On more than one occasion, either my senior or their parent has noticed that the other photographers around us aren’t using any lighting at all. When they see their images afterward, they understand why I use so much lighting on location. Eyes, hair and the whole image gets better and is better controlled.
