WHAT TO WEAR

Mechanicsburg does not have a strict dress code. However, for your formal yearbook style portrait, we suggest the following guidelines:

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 because of COVID-19 precautions, we strongly recommend that you wear your own jacket if you have one. If you want to wear one of our jackets, please be aware that we cannot dry clean them for each client. We are not able to provide dress shirts - please wear your own dress shirt. We also request that you wear your own tie. 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. We also have pearls available if needed, and we disinfect them with UV light after each use. 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 the photo for the yearbook as well as any photos that you order for yourself, 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!


Prices are listed below. If you are unable to afford the sitting fee that is required for the yearbook, please contact your school counselor, the yearbook adviser, or send an email to geoffs@camerabox.com  Need-based scholarship funds are available, and no one will be kept out of the yearbook for financial reasons.

 

Senior Portrait Sitting Prices

You pay for your sitting fee when the pictures are taken. The sitting fee includes the photo for the yearbook and basic retouching for the yearbook pose. The sitting fee does not include prints or digital files. We have several types of sittings available. Please decide what sitting you would like prior to scheduling your appointment:

Formal Sitting - $35 $25 now through November 30, 2020!

Traditional formal portrait session in one outfit; required for the yearbook. Includes the cost of retouching the yearbook pose. Camera Box will submit your yearbook pose to the school for you. Some schools have specific dress codes, but regardless, this session is a formal, dressy picture. Jackets and ties for guys are great, and formal tops or drapes for girls look best.

Casual Senior Sitting - Add $35

Because of COVID-19, please select outfits that allow you to change quickly in your vehicle if you choose an outdoor session.
