Senior Portrait Day: Sept. 25, Sept. 26 in Harper Great Hall
For the convenience of our seniors and their families, Brophy is bringing the senior portrait studio experience to campus. Prestige Portraits by Lifetouch, this year’s official photographer, will set up its studio in Harper Great Hall Sept. 25 and Sept. 26. The senior portrait experience will include a complimentary portrait session with four poses in a student’s yearbook outfit (mass dress with a dark-colored coat added) and four poses in cap and gown. Please note: It is mandatory that each student has a yearbook photo taken. This photo will appear in the 2019 yearbook, as well as in the 2019 class composite photo that will hang in Brophy Hall. In addition to the yearbook and cap and gown poses, additional upgraded sessions with clothing suggestions will be available. These options will be explained in upcoming communications. Proofs will be mailed and emailed to you about three weeks after your photography session. You will be able to easily view and select your yearbook image online. Yearbook images and all portrait orders will be automatically retouched. For your convenience, your yearbook image will be sent directly to the school.
