SENIOR PHOTO OPTIONS

Option 1: Professional Photographer (Best Option)

This is the easiest and best option for a high quality senior portrait.

Most of the local Photographers have been provided with the specifications for senior photos and will format the photo you select to have featured in the yearbook. Please check with your photographer to make sure they know the specifications.

Remember, for this option, the earlier you schedule, the better. Photographers’ schedules fill up quickly during the summer. 

 

Option 2: Take Your Own Photo (Must follow guidelines)

If you have a friend or a family member who can take a high-quality portrait, you may use this option.
