Your Senior Year is
In the Portland area, the Yearbook deadline is what will determine when you need to have your senior pictures done. Some schools are early like September (eek!) and some are as late as February (wow!). Check out the list below for your school’s approximate deadline. Specific dates usually come out the first week of school but it’s good to plan ahead now.
Let’s say you go to Westview High School. I’ve got 3 girls on my Senior Squad that go there! The deadline is early November, so when should Westview High School seniors have their pictures taken? No later than the first weekend of October. Know why? Cause October is when our lovely liquid sunshine starts coming back. Plus add in activities, work, busy with school, plus Fall is the busiest time of year for photographers = tough time of year for photos. What if you got rained out that first weekend? (That happened last year!) Then you’ve gotta reschedule for the next weekend, plus add in a week minimum of editing time for your gallery and then meet up the last weekend of October for your Gallery Reveal & Ordering Session. Whew! Just in time! And you thought you had a month huh!
Every year someone asks me, “But I just need one photo, can’t you just edit one?” Nope. You want to see all your images so you can decide which is the best for you. I love summer senior portraits because you aren’t back to the busy of the school year, we have amazing light, a rare chance of rain and plenty of time before your yearbook image is due.
At your Gallery Reveal & Ordering Session, we’ll pick your yearbook image. I’ll submit the image with the exact specifications for your yearbook. On time and in the format needed, no need to worry about how to do any of that!
1 date in August, 2 dates left in September and 2 dates for October! Email me asap to reserve your date firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dates are based on previous years. Always double check with your school to check the exact deadline
