This year, student portraits will be taken by CADY Photography. Seniors will have their portraits made on July 20 and July 21 at Boswell, or anytime before January 16 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
What days will you take pictures at Boswell?
We will only offer senior sessions on July 20 and July 21. You must sign up for an appointment to have your pictures made on one of those days.
Can’t I just have the picture made at school in the fall?
No. We will only have the senior sessions at Boswell on July 20 and 21. The photographs taken in the fall will be for underclassmen and senior IDs. The senior ID photos will not be used in the yearbook.
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 July 20-21?
You may have your portraits taken until January 27 at the studio.
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.
