Thirty years from now, where are you going to look when someone says, “Do you remember Susie Smith?”  Your yearbook.  Your senior photo will be the one picture that classmates and future friends associate with you.

Some seniors started the school year by striking a pose for their senior yearbook pictures. The senior picture makeups were September 10 and 11, giving seniors a last chance to be included in the yearbook or take casual shots as memories of senior year. Seniors who came to this session may have missed their summer date or wanted re-takes to improve the quality of this lasting memory.

Victor O’Neill Studios has been the school photographer for more than 20 years, for student yearbook and sports team photos.

Victor O’Neill Studios makes this process easier for seniors by providing traditional tuxedos and drapes, along with graduation cap and gowns. 

Senior Ethan Blache had his appointment for his senior photo and is excited for this year’s fresh start. “I am looking forward to spending my last year’s in high school with my friends and for Friday night football games,” said Blache.

There are session options that range from extensive shoots to simple poses. For example, the deluxe session includes 27 poses. This session provides traditional pictures, cap and gown, and casual pictures, which gives students the opportunity to add their own personality to the photographs. 

The second session option is the standard session which includes 18 poses. This session includes traditional pictures, cap and gown, and casuals.

“My favorite part about senior pictures was posing in a cap and gown. It became a reality that I’m now a senior and moving on to the next chapter of my life,” said senior Julia Folis. 

Students brought props like, class ring, letter jacket, musical instrument, favorite books or anything that shows who you are. This choice can be so memorable, so have fun with it!

Samantha Kohout brought her camera to express her love for photography, “Photography has been a huge part of my life for five years. Having my camera in the photos represents my personality perfectly,” said Kohout.

The deadline to choose which portrait you would like to be included in the yearbook is October 18th.
