Senior Portrait FAQ

FAQ

Senior Portraits —

Q: Where do I view my photo slot?
A: You will receive your appointment times in the mail via Lifetouch by late July.

Q: What if the time doesn’t work for me?
A: Contact Lifetouch at 540-562-3107 or 800-366-0639.

Q: What if I miss my time slot?
A: If you can come to the MLKPAC before 3:30pm on Senior Picture Day, come on out.  Otherwise do make ups.

Q. Where do I take my photo?
A: Go to the PAC, and they will direct you from there.

Q: What should I wear?
A. Wear an undershirt and bring several of your favorite outfits.

Q: Should I take a photo?
A: Yes, it gets you a Senior id, you may want to use the formal shot to send out to relatives, and it’s the first check on your name and image for the yearbook.  You can still submit a private photo as well.

Q: What if I want to submit a personal photo?
A: First, take your photo with Lifetouch on Senior Picture Day in the PAC and then do your private setting.  Submit the private one by October 1st to Ms. Hannah Helm at helmh1@charlottesvilleschools.org.  Make sure it’s a high-resolution photo (300 DPI) and rename it with your first and last name.  Place your name in the subject along with the words “Senior Photo.”  Example: Barney Rubble Senior Photo.
