Senior Portraits

Kurt Stepnitz Photography is based out of St. Paul, Minnesota, specializing in location portraiture, wedding, travel, editorial and commercial photography with over 40 years professional experience, including 35 as University photographer for Michigan State University.

I like to keep things simple regarding senior portrait packages, so I offer the following to you.

My preference is to make your portraits with you on location, either outdoors or indoors, your choice. I’m not a fan of studio-based senior photos, so if that’s what you wish, there are many other photographers in the area for you to consider. I’d rather see your personality come out in a relaxed situation where you’re feeling comfortable and relaxed. So if that’s a specific place that’s near and dear to your heart, let’s try and make that happen!

For $375, we’ll spend up to 2 hours shooting, but that includes wardrobe changes and location changes if necessary. So realistically, 2 or 3 locations and up to 4 wardrobe changes should be about the maximum to consider in this time frame to make sure we’re making the most of your investment. This 2-hour rate is meant for locations within 10 miles of the Twin Cities area. Locations beyond that radius can most certainly be discussed.

The number of proofs that I give you will change somewhat depending on how much we’re shooting versus how much moving or wardrobe changing is necessary, but typically I post to a password protected gallery from 75 to 150 images from a 2-hour shoot. From those you may select up to 15 final images that I will retouch for prints.

From those retouched image files, you can order prints. Again, they will be password protected in your own gallery so you as well as family can view and order the sized prints you wish. Those print prices are:

Wallet-sized prints $8 for each page of 8
4x6 inch prints $4 each
5x7 inch prints $7.50 each
8x10 inch prints $14 each
8x12 inch prints $15 each
11x14 inch prints $24 each
12x18 inch prints $28 each
16x20 inch prints $42 each
16x24 inch prints $55 each
20x24 inch prints $65 each
20x30 inch prints $80 each
24x36 inch prints $110 each
