Senior Portraits

IMPORTANT NOTE: This message applies to students who will be seniors for the 2022-2023 school year. (It does NOT apply to students who graduated in May of 2022.)


PAHS students pose for pictures during picture day.


Senior Portraits

All senior portraits taken by a private photographer for publication in the 2021 Hi-S-Potts yearbook are due to the Publications team by Friday November 4, 2022.

Seniors who choose not to submit a senior portrait will be pictured in the 2023 yearbook with their school photo portraits.

In an effort to help those who may need assistance finding a local professional photographer, this message contains information from photographers that have served the PAHS school community reliably for years. However, students are free to choose ANY professional photographer (who is able to follow the requirements listed below) for their portraits.

Submission Requirements

Photos can be submitted (in digital form) by emailing [email protected] or bringing a drive containing the photos to the Publications room at PAHS.

Photo Requirements

  • The background of the portrait must be a NEUTRAL solid screen – no textured backgrounds (like brick walls) or any taken outside.
  • The background should be a different color than the color of the student’s clothing. (Do not use a black background with a black sweater.)
  • The pose must be a formal portrait pose. (No chin on hands, holding a rose, etc.)
  • No black and white photos. (Must be color.)


Dress Code Requirements

  • All students should be formally dressed.
  • Boys must have a collar.
  • Girls may wear a formal sweater or top (v-neck, crewneck, turtleneck, etc.).
  • All tops must be one solid color. (Darker colors and long sleeves are generally more flattering.)
  • No t-shirts.
