Senior Pictures for 2017 Yearbook and change of dates of pictures



Senior pictures are an important part of your child’s final year at Patrick Henry.  Please consider using Candid Color Photography for your child’s senior picture.  The last day Candid Color will be on campus to take senior pictures will be October 3, 2016.  Please note: This is a change in dates.  We have had to make a switch with Atlee High School, and if you or our student has a conflict, please email Mrs. Moore a mkmoore@hcps.us.  Arrangements can be made to take pictures at Atlee High School on October 11.   You should receive information from Candid Color in the mail about photo dates.  Seniors who take their portraits with Candid Color will automatically be included in the yearbook.  It is the easiest way to be sure your child’s picture is included in the yearbook.  Selection of the pose can also be done online at www.candidcolor.net.  Otherwise, Candid Color will select the best of the poses.

In order to secure a spot for your senior pictures, please visit room 506 to sign up for a spot.  There are very limited spots available; please see Mrs. Moore as soon as possible to secure your spot.

If you do not take advantage of Candid Color’s services on October 3, you have two options for submitting a senior portrait to be included in the 2017 The Voice yearbook.


To submit a photo from an outside photographer (any photographer other than Candid Color):  Submit a Senior Portrait from an outside photographer by November 4, 2016.  No senior pictures will be accepted after this date. 

Photos that conflict with any of the following guidelines will not be accepted.  Senior portraits from outside photographers must follow exact guidelines so the yearbook staff can make its best effort to create senior section of consistently high quality.  Please be aware that all senior pictures print in color in the yearbook.  See other side for requirements.

  • We require digital files (in JPEG format).
  • If submitted on a disc, each disc should be clearly labeled with first name, middle name, and last name on the outside of the disc.
  • Male attire should be a white shirt, bow tie, and black tuxedo jacket.
  • Female attire should be a solid black drape, with no more than small earrings and a thin necklace or pearls.
  • Seniors should be facing the camera—shoulders may be angled left or right, but should be visible in photograph. We ask that you avoid over-the-shoulder poses.
  • Pictures with objects (for example, flowers) or names engraved in them will NOT be accepted.
  • Pictures need to be submitted with a light blue background. Portraits submitted with backgrounds that detract from the uniformity of the senior section will NOT be included in the yearbook.

Picture discs will be returned in a timely fashion.

Thank you for your review of this information.  We are striving for the highest quality possible in the senior section of the yearbook, and your compliance of these deadlines and requirements ensure uniformity in the yearbook.

Please feel free to contact the yearbook adviser with questions, comments, or concerns at mkmoore@hcps.us.

Senior Ad Information


Dear Parents and Family of the Class of 2017,

Your Patrick Henry Senior’s year is full of lots of firsts, lasts, and memorable experiences.  One of these is his or her yearbook.  The yearbook staff wants to continue a tradition we have found to be a unique way to honor your son/daughter/family member: Senior Advertisements.

We are extending you a chance to convey a special message to your senior in his or her final high school yearbook.  By offering you space in our advertising section, you may send your senior a message that will be preserved forever in their final yearbook.  The personalized message may include pictures you provide.  Costs of the ads vary depending on the size of the message you wish to send.  Other family members, parents, bothers, sisters, and friends can contribute to make your message more special if you would like to do so.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this, please fill out the enclosed Senior Ad Order Sheet, include print or digital photos (JPEG preferably), and method of payment. Payment is due at the time of order.  It is important that you send both payment and the order form to reserve your ad in the yearbook.

If you are using a picture through Jessica Robertson, please contact her office to have her send over your desired pictures to us.  Also, please document that you are having Jessica Robertson send pictures over on the order form—that way, we can ensure the correct pictures end up on your ad and coordinate with her office to ensure the correct pictures end up in your ad.

We produce the book so that it will be distributed in the spring, just before graduation.  Your photos or media will be returned to you with senior yearbooks at distribution or through the mail during the school year.  Our deadline for senior ads is Friday, November 4, 2016.  If you hurry and your order is received by PHHS Publications by Friday, October 28, 2016, we will give you a 20% discount (please deduct 20% before sending payment)! This is our way of saying thank you for submitting your order in early.

You may drop off your order in our front office or mail it.  Instructions are on the next page.  We hope you will consider being part of this significant moment in your senior’s life.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at the above number or by email mkmoore@hcps.us.
