Seniors - Class of 2023

Senior Portrait Information for the Class of 2023

Senior pictures are special, as is your student’s senior year yearbook. It’s the book that they’ll go back to at reunions, and the book they’ll show their children and grandchildren.

Please read the following requirements carefully and inform your photographer as necessary.

Portrait requirements:

  • Portraits must be head and shoulder shots only. We will crop images that do not meet this requirement, which can result in blurry images.
  • Image resolution must be at least 300 dpi. Do not save pictures from social media sites: they are not large enough.
  • Acceptable file types are .jpg and .png. No other file types can be accepted.
  • Photos with animals, large props, etc. distract from the purpose of the student portrait section and will not be used.

To minimize the potential for error and to help the (teenage) staff keep track of your portraits, following these guidelines is highly recommended.

  • Put your student’s full legal name in the subject of the email (or ask your photographer to do so)
  • Rename the photo file name with your student’s name (ex: O’Brien_Margaret.jpg)

 Please note:

  • Portraits that do not meet the above requirements will NOT be printed in the book.
  • Students who do not have a media release form on file will not be printed in the book. These forms are available from the office and online. 
  • The yearbook staff reserves the right to crop/zoom portraits to keep the section consistent.

If your senior does not get his/her portrait taken by a photographer, the yearbook will include his/her Lifetouch photo, if available.  Students without portraits will be listed at the end of the senior section.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Senior Portraits are due to WBLYEARBOOK@ISD624.ORG by November 30, 2022
