Senior Portrait Specifications for the Yearbook


It’s time to have your child’s senior portrait taken if you haven’t already. Portraits received after October are not guaranteed to be included in the yearbook.

Here are some pretty good area photographers that you might want to look into-

  • Brass Shutter in Denison 263-4321
  • Chelle's Creative Photo in Woodbine 647-2101 www.chellesphotos.com
  • Debbies in Dow City 643-5472 www.debbiesphoto.com
  • Everlasting Portraits in Mapleton 882-1160 www.everlastingportraitstudio.com
  • Fiahston Photography in Moorhead 886-5606
  • Portraits by Hope in Dow City 263-8882 www.portraitsbyhope.com

If you absolutely can't afford anybody else or don't intend to have Senior Portraits taken, you can have Mr. Mallory or Mrs. Hanigan take a simple "head-shot" of you for the yearbook.

While most major photography studios in the area already have these specifications, please have your photographer make a print that matches the following:
► Head-and-shoulder shots only
► No full body, no props
► Plain backgrounds preferred, indoor shots preferred
► Photo size: 1 ¾ inches tall by 1 ½ inches wide
► Photos must be vertical
► Head size from top of head to chin: 1 inch maximum
► COLOR photos, please. No black and white.
► Pictures turn out better if they are submitted digitally rather than our having to scan a print. If your photographer will submit photos digitally they must be 120% size at 300 ppi. They can be submitted on CD, DVD, on USB flashdrive or online. Please e-mail pictures to malloryt@boyer-valley.k12.ia.us.(This will work if you take your own too).


► If you or your child chose not to have a local photo studio take their portrait or can not afford to, either Mr. Mallory, the Yearbook Advisor or Mrs. Hanigan, the Student Newspaper Advisor, are available to take a simple "head shot" for the yearbook.
