Senior Information

May 24, 2018

Dear Rising Seniors and Parents:

I know you find it hard to believe, but it is already time to start making arrangements for your senior year of high school.  Please note the following dates on your calendars:

Wednesday, June 27 – Friday, June 29, 2018:  Prestige/Lifetouch Portraits will take senior portraits in the LCHS Auditorium.

It is extremely important that all rising seniors have their yearbook portraits made on these dates.  The Reflector yearbook staff is often asked if pictures may be taken by outside photographers.  Before you make this decision, let me convey some important benefits to using Prestige Portraits of Richmond, Virginia.

  • If the same photography company takes ALL color senior portraits, the appearance of the senior section is dramatically improved in your 2018 senior yearbook 
  • Prestige Portraits makes it easy for you because they come to LCHS. You do not need to drive to a distant photography studio or make appointments
  • Prestige Portraits sends multiple professional photographers so the process is much quicker than at a studio without sacrificing quality
  • Prestige Portraits offers a variety of packages (you are not obligated to buy and may certainly go elsewhere for your keepsakes), and students can pose with friends, animals, cars, and uniforms just like they can with outside photographers 
  • Taking the pictures with Prestige/Lifetouch Portraits guarantees that all pictures will meet the requirements set by the yearbook staff so students’ portraits will appear in the 2018 yearbook.  Any portrait taken by an outside photographer must be turned in to me by November 7, 2018 along with a $20 handling fee.  Boys should wear the traditional tuxedo with black bow tie and girls should wear the traditional black velvet drape; students should be facing forward (not looking back over a shoulder) with no props in hand.  The background must be medium blue (see our 2018 yearbook8). The image must be in digital format and 1200 x 1500 pixels. If a picture taken by an outside photographer differs in pose, dress, or quality, it may not be accepted by the yearbook staff for publication. Those portraits taken by outside photographers are not guaranteed publication, so it is strongly suggested seniors use the provided photographer, regardless of where they plan to purchase their own portraits.
  • Juniors/Seniors: Juniors who intend to graduate early may take a picture for the senior     section, but they must be officially recognized as an early graduate by the guidance office

 Please make every effort to have your pictures taken by Prestige Portraits. They will be sending you information about how to make your appointment online and about their package options; students should PRESTIGEPORTRAITS.COM to set up their appointments. If there is a scheduling conflict, students will have only one other opportunity September 13, 2018, to make up the yearbook portrait at no cost. 

Thank you in advance,

Stacy H. Wildman
