School Photo Dates
2023 - 2024
High School Yearbook Deadlines
High School deadlines vary by school but, most occur in the late fall (October 1 thru November 15) to early winter months. Please be aware of your school's deadline to avoid being left out of your book.
Elementary School Yearbook Deadlines
Elementary schools do not have traditional yearbook deadlines but, you must be photographed on either picture day or remake day at your school.
How to Order...
You can purchase your portraits in one of 3 ways:
Place your order online before picture day (Pre-order)
Hand the photographer your completed school picture order form on picture day
Order from proofs online following picture day (Proof Order)
Always place your order online before picture day or with an order form on picture day. Your package price is the same using these two methods. All of our portraits are fully guaranteed.
Orders placed using the proof method are slightly higher (we lose volume discounts at our lab) and we must add shipping charges to mail them to your home. Photos may not be picked up at our office.
We feel the best investment you can make to your photograph is through facial retouching. We offer 2 services. The first is for removing blemishes only and the second is for enhanced retouching that covers blemishes and softens lines around the eyes or for those with increased acne.
2023 - 2024 Picture Order Form
Order forms will be delivered to you from your school. Additional forms are available in the school office or you can print the form below and bring it with you on picture day. The safest method is to order online (complete with receipt) anytime before or up to midnight on picture day. All photos are guaranteed. You can order from proofs once they are posted (normally, 3 to 5 days after picture day) but, packages are typically higher and they must include shipping costs. Photos can NOT be picked up from our office.
