bishop's school official yearbook portrait page

yearbook attire

Official yearbook portraits require seniors to wear one of the following three options:
* A formal, off-the-shoulder drape provided by the studio
* A white button-down dress shirt, black or navy blazer and the Bishop's senior tie
* A neutral, collared blouse or shirt under the Bishop's dress sweater (must be in good repair)

In the summer, we photograph yearbook-only portraits in
10-minute appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.


How to Prepare:

The yearbook portrait 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. If you're wearing the drape, it is a good idea to wear a spaghetti-strapped or strapless shirt so that you can place the drape over the shirt.

The 10-minute Appointment:

The appointment is complimentary. We will take several photos in different positions and angles. In about a week, you will receive an email with a link to view your yearbook images and choose the one you like the most. We will retouch your choice and send it over to the school for you.

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.
