FAQs - GCHS Senior Orders

To meet tight yearbook deadlines, we must have your yearbook selection within 5 days of your having received your previews. After that time we may be forced to make a selection for you using our best judgement and 20+ years of portrait experience. Images are submitted directly to the yearbook by our studio.

We create a specially formatted digital file that is submitted directly to the yearbook staff. If you  placed an order or paid for retouching the yearbook image, we will retouch the file that is sent to the yearbook. Otherwise, we correct the image for color and exposure and submit the un-retouched image.

If you don't place an order, or give us your yearbook selection, we simply pick an appropriate image of you using our best judgment and 20+ years of portrait experience. Your image will be adjusted for color and exposure and then submitted un-retouched directly to the yearbook by our studio.

You may still place an order at a later date.

Yearbook images are retouched at no charge with any order that is placed, even if you are not ordering a print of the yearbook image. If you would like your yearbook image retouched and you are not placing an order or are not yet ready to place an order, you may have it retouched for $15.00. This $15.00 may then be applied toward a future order.

If you do not place an order, do not pay for having the yearbook image retouched, or simply never give us a yearbook image, your image will be corrected for color and exposure and submitted to the yearbook staff un-retouched.

All prints are balanced for color and exposure and retouched for removal minor blemishes, correction of skin-tone, and softening of shadows and lines.

We also offer additional retouching services. Please refer to the Senior Portrait Catalog for fees regarding these services.

The following services are offered on a per image basis:

  • Retouch extensive blemishes and/or oily skin
  • Remove braces
  • Remove tan lines
  • Flyaway hair removed
  • Remove stud earrings
  • Remove eyeglass glare
  • Remove moles or minor scars
  • Whiten teeth

Each package clearly specifies the number of images you may select to be included in your order. The number is in red right under the package heading.

For example:

Package# 1
Includes 5 image selections

When putting your ofer together, this is how many images you may split amoung your prints.

However, you may add additional image selections to your package for $10.00 each, thereby increasing the number images you may select for your package. In other words, if your package only includes 1 image selection, for $10.00 more it can include 2 images to select from. You may add as many additional images to your package as you desire. You may also add additional prints to your package!

Please keep in mind 5x7s must be ordered in sets of two, 4x5s must be ordered in sets of 4, and wallets must be ordered in sets of 8. As such, if your package contains 4 5x7s and allows for at least 2 image selections, you may split the 5x7s into two images. However, if you package   only contains 2 5x7s they can not be split.

Absolutly! If you are ordering a package, refer to the "Add Additional Prints To Any Package" section of the catalog. You may then split any image selections among these print also.

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
