Senior Portraits for the Class of 2017

The time has come to begin thinking about your senior portrait for the 2017 yearbook! Outlined below are some guidelines and suggestions for students in the past.

Portraits are not required to be head shots. The picture should include only the senior (no other people). The final picture should be color and in focus, and the resolution should be at least 300 dpi. Pictures should be at least 3”x5” for final printing.

Pictures may come from any photographer, amateur or professional. If you would like your portrait to be taken professionally, some students use Prestige Portraits, a company that is affiliated with LifeTouch, the company that takes our underclassmen yearbook portraits. Their information can be found here. Additionally, we have had many photographers advertise in our yearbook over the years, and we always encourage members of the Raleigh Charter community to patronize businesses that support our yearbook. In the past couple of years, SD Portraits, Willa Stein Photography, and Renee Sprink Photography have advertised in our book. Keep in mind that pictures are NOT required to be taken by a professional photographer.

Senior Portraits should be sent to yearbook.editors@raleighcharterhs.org by mid October. Information regarding the final deadline will be sent out at the beginning of the school year.
