  • The photographer books in 15-minute increments. You may sign up for more time if you would like a wider variety of poses.
  • Even if you choose to use your own photographer, your son must schedule a free 15-minute time to have a formal portrait made with Priory’s photographer, HR Imaging. This portrait will also be used in the class composite that hangs in the High School, where consistency is important.
  • Your son will meet the photographer at the bridge by the pond between the High School and Gymnasium. Please be prompt.
  • We require one photo of your son wearing pants, suitcoat and tie for the Yearbook and class composite. Please see senior pictures in past Yearbooks for examples. Seniors can be photographed in different clothes (for example, a Varsity jersey, club shirt, or casual clothes) but must have a formal coat-and-tie portrait made. Clothing changes are part of your photo shoot, so please ensure your son reserves enough time to account for different poses, locations, and clothing changes.
  • If you choose to use your own photographer, please request a 3/4 length body, vertical pose, in high-resolution .jpg format. Your son must wear pants, suitcoat and tie for this picture. It might be helpful to show your photographer a Yearbook.
  • Seniors will be allowed to choose their photograph for the Yearbook. If you use your own photographer and do not submit a photo by the December 16 deadline, we will use an image provided by the school’s photographer.

Important Information - Parent Pages

  • A limited number of Parent Pages for the back of the Yearbook are available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis.
