Senior Portraits: Requirements and Information!

Seniors: Please see the information below about senior portraits. Please contact the advisers, Ms. Charpentier and Miss Christian, either in person or by email at with any questions about photo requirements or the submission process.

If you have not had pictures taken yet, please do so soon; you are free to select any photographer you would like for your senior portraits. If you would like to take advantage of some low-cost options for your senior portrait, the school photographers, Grynn and Barrett, recently sent home information about scheduling a portrait session at UHS on Monday, September 19.

Class of 2017: Senior Portrait Requirements

Senior portraits are due by October 1, 2016.

If you have your picture taken by the school photographers, Grynn and Barrett, they will make sure your photo meets these requirements and send it to yearbook. Otherwise, it is up to you to make sure your photo meets the requirements and gets to the yearbook staff!

Submission Requirements
  • Our preferred format is a high resolution DIGITAL photo – this will result in the best quality.
  • All portrait prints or digital files must be submitted by October 1, 2016.
  • Submissions after this date may not be accepted and your school photo will be used in its place.
Photograph Requirements
  • Head and shoulder portraits, close-ups, and 3/4 length portraits are all acceptable. Full-length portraits will not be accepted.
  • Plain backgrounds in natural colors are preferred, but outdoor photographs will be accepted.
  • Portraits must be vertical – you can't be lying down!
  • We will accept color or black and white photos.
  • The following types of clothing are NOT allowed: sunglasses, visible tattoos, hats, "tank top" type straps on shirts/dresses, strapless blouses/dresses, and bare shoulders.
  • Props are permitted in photos; however, pets and fellow humans are not considered props.
