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. Because of COVID-19 precautions, Camera Box is not able to provide shared shirts or jackets this year. Guys, unless you wear facial hair, you should shave before 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!


Price are listed below. If you are unable to afford the sitting fee that is required for the yearbook, please visit the Argus website or call (717)506-3514 for more information. Need-based scholarship funds are available, and no one will be kept out of the yearbook for financial reasons.
