To keep everyone’s portraits consistent, here are some important guidelines to follow: 

  • Front facing or standing pose only – sit straight up
  • Make sure the photo is from the chest up, no hands visible in the picture
  • No deliberate, crazy facial expressions
  • Stand in front of a blank, one-color wall
  • Avoid these situations when taking your portrait.

    Regular clothes – no costumes
  • No writing on shirt
  • No off-the-shoulder, spaghetti strap, tank, tube, low-cut, one-strap, halter or see-through tops
  • No hats, visors, caps, sunglasses or props
  • No additional people or pets in the photo, besides the student
