• Senior portraits

    This year, student portraits will be taken by CADY Photography. Seniors will have their portraits made on August 5, 2023, at Boswell, or anytime before January 27, 2024, at the Cady Studio location in Grapevine. You must sign up for an appointment to have your portrait made at either location. Please see the “Senior Portraits FAQ” below for additional information.

    Senior Portraits FAQ

    Who do I contact with questions about senior portraits?

    Mr. Cliff Hamilton, chamilton02@ems-isd.net 

    What days will you take pictures at Boswell?

    We will only offer senior sessions on August 5, 2023. You must sign up for an appointment to have your pictures made.

    Can’t I just have the picture made at school in the fall?

    No. We will only have the senior sessions at Boswell on August 5, 2023. The photographs taken in the fall will be for underclassmen and senior IDs. The senior ID photos will not be used in the yearbook.

    ***Cady has offered us additional senior portrait day opportunities on October 4, and December 6, 2023.***

    What if I just want to get the yearbook photo done?

    We have always taken a cap/gown and tux/drape photo along with the casual outfit. At this time, we do not know which option the yearbook editors will use for the book. As it is a student created publication, the editors make that decision once they have chosen the theme. That is why the session includes all 3 shots.

    Why do I have to pay for a sitting fee?

    The photographs that are being done are not the same as the photographs your student has gotten any other school year. These are studio quality photographs with real backgrounds, rather than a backdrop. Additionally, the photographers will work with your student to truly capture their personality for the yearbook. The sitting fee is refunded to you in the form of a voucher which you may use towards the cost of photographs. Additionally, any senior who has their portrait made at the Cady Studio by November 1 will receive a $10 discount off their yearbook.

    What if I am out of town on August 5, 2023?

    You may have your portraits taken until January 27, 2024 at the studio, or on October 4 or December 6, 2023 at Boswell.

    Why are they making me sign a disclaimer stating I will pay for the proofs if I do not return them?

    This is standard for photographers who provide actual prints as proofs that do not have a watermark across the photo. As they are sending you actual prints bound into a keepsake portfolio, if you want to keep them, you would need to pay for them. Cady Studios provides a postage-paid return envelope, so you simply need to place them in the envelope and return them at no cost to you within the 30 day period.
