Attention: Class of 2017 for all Oregon Schools, Senior portraits yearbook due dates and requirements listed for Sherwood High School #Bowmen, Newberg High School ,#Tigers , Lake Oswego High School #Lakers, West Linn High School, Tigard High School, McMinnville High School, Beaverton High School current as of June 18, 2016.  Updates will be available as they come in.

 

Pro Thoughts: If it were up to me…seniors would be able to have complete creative control over selecting their high school senior portraits for the yearbook as long as it was a good image photographically.  But, it looks like each school wants to have  a little continuity in their yearbook, thus the guidelines.  I’m publishing this because I feel that most students and parents are a little misinformed and not well prepared for the planning of their portraits session.  Generally, in Oregon most high schools tend to want the yearbook images turned in by Fall or Winter of the High School Senior Year.  So, most parents aren’t really aware of the deadlines until kids get back to school in September.  Once September hits in Oregon there really are only a few weeks of good weather to have your shoot and it’s very late in the season to be taking them.  Possible but risky with shorter days of light and heavy rains.  In order to have an awesome variety of locations planning for your high school portraits generally has to happen before finals of your junior year. You will notice there are two schools who have updated and prepared parents ahead of time.  For the remaining schools please keep in mind these are forecasted dates, to give you a general idea and heads of due dates.

As a standard we do provide senior portraits yearbook headshot standard requirements presented to all clients is a full resolution at 300 DPI.

Class of 2017 #SHS #Seniors #Photography #Sessions #Junior #Yearbook

high-school-senior-yearbook-portrait-sherwood-bowmen-2002 550-copy-1The last  year of high school is a major milestone! Your getting closer to being all grown up! All that hard work you put in these last years, late nights of homework not to mention stressful finals.  Finally, you are getting recognized for all your hard work.  And to think that you roamed around high school campus during your freshman, sophomore, and junior year with a school id that resembles a mug shot.  Finally, it’s your time to shine with your pro headshot.  You know senior year…you have to go out with a bang! So…how do you rock your high school senior yearbook headshot?

 

First, be your amazing self and bring that to your photo shoot. Your positive energy has to be on point.  It’s not the time to hide who you are.  I hope you did your homework on this one because connecting with your photographer is going to make a difference on whether you look uptight or relaxed. Quick tip when looking for your pro, consider personality vibes along with an amazing body of work. By amazing body of work I mean other sample senior pictures, Just like you wouldn’t get your sports gear at a grocery store, make sure your photographer actually takes pictures of people versus flower shots. LOL.  Honestly, personality is almost as important as photography skill level.  If you look like a zombie out of fear and confusion because you don’t know what to do during your session and your photographer doesn’t have people skills to get you to relax, you will look uncomfortable in your picture.  The key is you gotta be  yourself and have fun on your photo shoot.  When you are comfortable with your photographer you get to enjoy the moment.  When you are genuinely having fun your head shot is going to come out fabulous because your smiles will be authentic.  Seriously, if your photographer has to ask you to smile, run.  That’s plain weird.  Fake laughs always look fake. Your photographer is there to make you look good and you should just have fun.
