Below is detailed information explaining all of the photo requirements for seniors
IMPORTANT – Students must be in dress code for all photos used in the yearbook. Click here for the latest dress code rules:
Boys – no facial hair, no piercings, hair must be appropriate length according to dress-code rules.
Girls – no crop, see-through, or low-cut tops; ripped jeans; too-short skirts, dresses or shorts; no two-piece bathing suits; any photos deemed not in dress-code compliance will be asked to be resubmitted.
Formal Portraits – due September 27
They are mandatory but are free to TFA senior families. Students must make an appointment with Prestige Portraits (Lifetouch) and go to their studio to take their portrait.
Formal portraits should be before school starts and must be taken by September 27th. Formal Portraits may be taken on-campus on Friday, August 24. Additional details will be emailed to senior families.
Studio Address: 2434 Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32809.
Black drapes and tuxedo tops will be provided at the studio.
Once photos are taken, you will be asked to select a proof you approve of. Make sure the photo is selected, as it will be used in RenWeb, the yearbook and at graduation. **Note, if you change your mind on the proof selection, it is the senior’s responsibility to communicate the correct proof # to the yearbook staff.
Informal Portraits – due October 31
They are required for the yearbook and graduation. An informal portrait is a recent casual photo of a senior. It does not have to be professionally taken.
Informal portraits are due to the yearbook staff by October 31, but should be taken before school starts.
The photo will be used in the accomplishments section of the yearbook AND on the screen at graduation.
Seniors may want to have a few informal photos available, as many choose to use a different informal photo for the accomplishments section and graduation. Additionally, if you purchase a memory page you will need another informal portrait for the main photo on the page.
**Note, it is the senior family’s responsibility to communicate the which photo they would like used for graduation IF it is different than the one used for the accomplishments section of the yearbook.
Baby Photo – due October 31
It is used only for graduation. The photo will appear on the screen for a few seconds when your senior walks across the stage.
The photo can be emailed to yearbook staff or a hard copy can be sent in to be scanned by the yearbook staff.
The photo can be of your senior at any age between an infant and as a toddler.
Additional Photos Required
Beyond the three photo requirements listed above, there are other requirements for seniors and parents to submit photos for the yearbook and senior events.
All senior-related photos should be emailed to email@example.com. In the subject and/or body of the email, you must explain what the photo(s) should be used for (i.e. graduation, senior video, memory page, etc.)
Senior Memory Page – If a parent purchases a senior memory page, they will have to gather additional photos to use on the page. Parents may choose to reuse some of the photos for other requirements.
13-year Seniors – Parents will receive separate communication with specific photo needs.
Kindergarten Photo – Parents will receive separate communication for a kindergarten photo of their child for the final senior lunch of the year.
NOTE – The purchase of the memory page does not include the purchase of a yearbook.
Order & Submission Deadline – October 31
We will offer at least 1 after-school help sessions for parents to attend to receive help from the yearbook staff with their page. Details on the work sessions will be sent out in August.
IMPORTANT – All Senior Memory Pages are subject to yearbook staff and administration approval. That approval includes, but is not limited to, photos, written content, and overall design (i.e. font choice) to make sure the pages are consistent with the overall design of the yearbook and the Parent-Student Handbook code of conduct.
They should be ordered early in the year to secure the best pricing.
They are typically delivered to the school and passed out to students in early May.
Seniors will submit a short senior quote by October 31 to be used in the yearbook.
The quote must not be longer than approximately 200 words.
The quote will have to be approved by yearbook editors and TFA administration. If a quote is deemed inappropriate, the student will have an additional opportunity to resubmit a quote. If that quote is also rejected, then yearbook staff and administration will choose a quote or Bible verse to use for the senior.
A digital signature will be obtained from every senior to be used for the formal portrait section of the yearbook.
Yearbook staff will collect this signature from each senior during the school day sometime during the Fall Semester.
