CV Deadline yearbook deadline is over
Cumberland Valley Class of 2022 - You MUST be photographed by September 16, 2021. This is the last day to make the yearbook deadline.
Read the letter from the CV Argus staff about senior pictures. CV students are required to have the yearbook photo taken by Camera Box.
For outdoor photos or studio casual pictures for yourself and your family, please schedule a sitting at our studio by calling 717.761.2017
WHAT TO WEAR
Here are some suggestions:
Guys - a jacket and tie is appropriate, or you can wear a dress shirt and tie without a jacket. Camera Box has a limited number of black jackets, but if possible please wear your own if you have one. If you want to wear one of our jackets, please be aware that we use spray disinfectant on the jacket after each use, but we cannot dry clean them for each client. We are not able to provide dress shirts - you MUST have your own dress shirt. We also request that you wear your own tie. Guys, unless you wear facial hair, you should shave on the day of your appointment.
Girls, a formal sweater or dress is good, or you can wear one of our drapes. Camera Box provides the drape, and each drape is washed after each use. Because your shoulders are uncovered while wearing the drape, please wear a cami or tank top with thin straps for the formal sitting. Straps must be pushed down when the drape is worn. Wear makeup for your pictures. You don't have to do too much - just enhance your natural look.
Guys or Girls - For formal poses, long sleeves are best. Avoid strong patterns - simple is best for formals. Middle tones or dark colors usually look best for the yearbook style poses. For casuals or outdoor photos, wear what you like.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR PICTURES
The most important thing to ensure good senior pictures is to spend time preparing for your sitting. Choose outfits that you like and that look good on you. Get input from your parents and your friends.
Acne: Don’t panic if you break out before your scheduled time. We retouch all of your finished pictures, so it may be best to leave your skin alone and not use too much cover-up.
Hair: Make sure you are comfortable with your hair - if you get a new hairstyle on picture day and you don't like it, you won't like your pictures.
Clothes: Make sure your clothes are neat and not wrinkled up.
Sleep: Get plenty of rest the night before your appointment so you come in feeling fresh and looking good!
