We photograph yearbook-only portrait sessions in
15-minute appointments on Sundays and Mondays
Scroll to the bottom of this page to book your yearbook-only session online.
How to Prepare:
The yearbook headshot will only be from your chest up. Please make sure everything you are wearing that will be visible is pressed and in good condition. Don't forget about your hair, makeup and jewelry.
The 15-minute Appointment:
The appointment is complimentary. We will take several photos in different positions and angles. We may switch up your hair or try different smiles. You will then have a chance to review all the images and will select the one you would like us to retouch for the yearbook. We want you to be happy with your official yearbook portrait. We do schedule these appointments back-to-back - so please be mindful of the time. If you happen to be running late, just let us know and we will try to get you in as soon as possible.
Ordering your Final Image:
We will upload your retouched yearbook photo and send you the link and password within a couple of weeks of your yearbook session. You will be able to order the digital image and/or prints of this image directly from this link.
We do complimentary retouching on your official yearbook choice, which includes getting rid of any blemishes, uneven skin tones, dark circles and flyaway hairs. If you would like additional retouching - for example, if you would like us to remove your braces - just let us know. There is an additional charge for this kind of retouching.
