Class of 2019: Senior Portrait Requirements

Senior portraits are due by October 1, 2018.


While not required, we recommend you schedule a senior portrait session with the official school photographer, David Silverman Photography, who will make sure that your photo meets all standards for the yearbook and send it to us. If you choose to use another photographer, it is up to you to make sure your photo meets these requirements and gets to the yearbook staff.

Submission Requirements

  • If you had your senior portrait taken by the school photographer, you are all set! If you are submitting a photo taken by anyone else, you are responsible for getting your photo to the yearbook staff.

  • Our preferred format is a high resolution digital photo. Please submit your photo in JPEG format, and send us a copy that is at least 640 x 800 pixels (.8 aspect ratio) in size so that we can print it at good quality. You can email your photo to starting in June.

  • If you received your photo on a CD or only have prints, you can also submit your photo by bringing the CD or print to the yearbook adviser, Ms. Charpentier. Once yearbook has a copy of your photo, the CD or print will be returned to you.

  • All portrait prints or digital files must be submitted by October 1, 2018. Submissions after this date may not be accepted. If you do not submit another photo to the yearbook staff to use as your senior portrait, we will use your school ID photo.

Photograph Requirements

  • Head and shoulder portraits, close-ups, and 3/4 length portraits are all acceptable.

  • Plain backgrounds in natural colors are preferred, but outdoor photographs will be accepted.

  • The layout used in the yearbook uses a portrait orientation, not landscape, for photos. If you submit a landscape photo, we will crop it to fit the layout.

  • We will accept color or black and white photos.

  • The yearbook is a school publication; please make sure that your outfit complies with the school dress code.

  • Props are permitted in photos; however, pets and fellow humans are not considered props.

If you have any questions about senior portraits, please contact the yearbook adviser at

Yearbook Events & Meetings


Whether you're an accomplished photographer, journalist, artist, or graphic designer, or you're looking to develop a new skill, any student interested in bringing their talents and enthusiasm to the yearbook staff is welcome!

The interest meeting for the 2019 book will be held on Friday, September 7, after school in the library from 2:00 - 2:30. Come get an idea of what being on the yearbook staff is like, and start dreaming up ideas for the next book! 


Everyone Is a Yearbook Photographer!


The yearbook represents your high school experience, both in school and out. Our cameras can't go everywhere, which is why we need YOU! Submit pictures of you and your friends, both in and outside of school, for consideration in the UHS Spartan Yearbook. Remember, pictures can't be downloaded from Facebook and then submitted (Facebook resizes photos when they are uploaded, so after they have been on Facebook the quality is not good enough for print), so send us your pictures directly from your phone or camera. 

When you upload pictures to the Yearbook Snap app with our school code UHS18, they'll go straight to the yearbook staff! Download the app from iTunes or Google Play, or upload photos from your computer when you search for Uxbridge at
