The Perfect Yearbook Image

The deadline to submit photos for yearbook is quickly approaching at many local high schools.Take note Milford students…the deadline this year is October 21! Now is your chance to come into Essenza so we can help you capture the perfect yearbook image.

Achieving a classic, timeless yearbook photo can seem daunting to some, but there really are just a few simple steps to help insure a great photo. First, choosing a solid piece of clothing is best. Patterns, stripes, etc…can be very distracting. As can large logos. Crazy patterns and large logos tend to be busy and pull the attention away from your face to your clothing. For a close up yearbook image, also pay attention to sleeve length. Long sleeves and 3/4 length sleeves work best. A collared shirt or shirt that comes to the base of your neck, will help to frame your face beautifully. Avoid short sleeves or tank top style shirts. Finally, don’t be afraid to “dress up” a bit for your yearbook image. A collared dress shirt worn with a tie or sweater is a timeless look for guys and for girls, a shirt with a simple neckline paired with a piece of statement jewelry always looks great.

All of our Senior Portrait Sessions include a complimentary yearbook image submission. But should you just need a head shot for yearbook alone, the cost is only $45. Don’t delay till the last moment…call the studio today to schedule your appointment.
