Gr 12 Formal Senior Picture Info

4 possible 2019 Saturdays: 08/10/19 - 09/07/19 - 10/12/19 - 11/09/19

15 minute appointment between 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Schedule formal Senior portrait

All senior pictures for the yearbook & composite displayed in Miracle Commons come from Dan Ledbetter Photography. Since the photo used is picked at the appointment, the photographer recommends a parent accompany their senior to the appointment.

Additional portraits may be taken at another time or with other photographers. Email questions to the Upper School 9-12 office.


Location: Dan Ledbetter Photography is located in the Landen Square Shopping Center, approximately 4 to 5 miles north of the school on Montgomery Road/22&3 (map).

Minimum Session Fee: $25.00 for inclusion in the yearbook and the CHCA alumni composite as well as comprehensive retouching; payable when you reserve your appointment. Prints may be ordered.


Dress Code:

  • Gentlemen: a dark suit jacket, white dress shirt and a dark tie
  • Ladies: wear or bring a tank top or short sleeve shirt as a formal black draping will be used so all the pictures are uniform. Please limit jewelry to small earrings and a pearl necklace. A pearl necklace is available to borrow for the photo session and a privacy top if what is worn does not work well with the drape.


Suggestions for a good portrait:

  • Face: Naturally, faces are the most important part of a portrait. Foundation make up should be blended at the jaw line for smooth transitions between face and neck. The camera picks up details in makeup very well and too much will not look good. Usually a natural, clean look works best.
  • Hairstyles: Simple and off-the-face photograph well. Hair falling down onto the sides of the face can create distracting shadows. Bangs that come down too low keep light from getting into the eyes. Men should have their hair cut not much sooner than one week prior to the scheduled appointment.
  • Glasses: You decide if you would like to wear your glasses while being photographed. If you choose to wear them, you may be asked to tip them up off your ears a bit to cut glare from studio lights. In some cases it's possible to obtain a frame set similar to your own from your eyewear specialist.
