Senior Deadline Information

Senior portraits are taken in the summer prior to your senior year as they are the first deadline of your yearbook. We recommend that you book early to receive your ideal session date and qualify for some of our specials.

After you are photographed and view your photos in our studio, we submit your yearbook selection to the school for you.

Students who re-schedule their appointment too close to the yearbook deadline will not be able to make their own choice for the yearbook.

O’Connor Photography will submit a studio choice to the yearbook.

If a student doesn't make a choice for the yearbook before the deadline, The Studio will make one for them, in order to be included in the Yearbook.


“ What if I borrow a cap and gown and bring it in for pictures? ”

That will work! You are welcome to bring your own cap and gown for your session if you choose to, which means you WILL NOT have to do the cap and gown portion in the Spring of 2021. We already have the “2021” tassel charm for you to use.

“ When is the yearbook deadline? ”

The yearbook deadlines vary, it can be as early as September or as late as December. It depends on the yearbook publisher for your school and it is up to the yearbook advisor to provide this date and we usually are given this date at the beginning of your 2020-2021 school year.

“ Which photo goes into the yearbook? ”

Unfortunately since we are unable to let you use our tux/suit and black drape yearbook attire, you will be able to choose your own clothing for the yearbook as long as it follows the school dress code. The cap and gown is NOT sent to the school for the yearbook.

“ What classifies as semi-formal yearbook attire? “

Collared, button up dress shirt. No polo shirts. We recommend a suit/ tux jacket along with a tie/bow tie but it’s okay if you don't have a jacket or tie. Nice blouse or dress as long as it follows school dress code . (Yearbook and Traditional sessions DO NOT include full body poses). The attire you choose DOES NOT have to resemble the black drape or DOES NOT have to be a black jacket and tie with white shirt. Be different, stand out!

“Why is there limited availability for scheduling a session ?”

There are a couple of reasons why there is limited availability . As the weeks progress we will make more days available online. Some students tend to wait until the last minute to take their photo and sometimes there is no room to reschedule if needed . Also, we don't want you to schedule too late in the year until we know when the school yearbook deadline is . We do not want you to accidentally depend on a date that will possibly be after your schools deadline. We advise you to take your photos as soon as possible ! There is a chance there will be later dates available if you schedule by phone (not a guarantee).
