Back to school: Carmel High School to offer discounted senior portraits
By Sophie Pappas
Senior year is the time to bond with childhood friends and prepare for careers and education after life at Carmel High School. For many students, this means sharing senior portraits with family and friends.
This year, Carmel High School is partnering with Prestige Portraits to help make senior photos affordable and convenient for the class of 2015.
“I’m sure you’re proud and excited about approaching your senior year,” stated Carmel High School assistant principal Brad Sever in a letter to all incoming seniors. “I’m excited as well and wanted to inform you that Prestige Portraits has been chosen to partner with our school.”
Photos taken by Prestige Portraits will also be used in the senior section of the 2014-2015 school yearbook.
“Because the senior section pictures in the yearbook must have consistency in head size, background and posing, only portraits taken by Prestige Portraits will be included in the senior section of the yearbook,” Sever stated.
A $15 sitting fee will be charged to participating seniors, however this fee will be waved if seniors choose to order additional photos.
Sever said that students must adhere to school dress code for all yearbook photos, and this includes covering shoulders and chests.
“Strapless, low necklines and spaghetti straps will not be allowed to the senior section,” he said.
The last day to take senior portraits with Prestige Portraits is Oct. 14. Students are encouraged to sign up for their photo session well in advance to ensure being included in the yearbook, and having photos delivered in time to give as gifts for the holiday season. Students or parents can call 829-2088 to make an appointment.
