Dear Parents of Seniors,
Here are some friendly reminders for you regarding senior portraits and senior tributes for the yearbook. This is the same information that was sent out around registration, so if you have already completed these steps you are all set :).
The next paragraph includes information about senior headshots, how independent photographers submit portraits, what the specs are for senior portraits, what (not) to wear, and when the portraits are due to Northern. The two paragraphs after that include information about the composite (through Prestige) and the final paragraph includes information about purchasing a yearbook and senior tributes.
Nothing has changed with WLN's senior portraits for the yearbook. You may use the photographer of your choice for senior headshots. If you use Prestige or Focal Point, those studios will make sure to submit the portrait directly to the yearbook staff. If you use an independent photographer, they must upload the senior portrait at our yearbookforever.com site. Most local independent photographers are very familiar with this process, but if not, please have them follow these instructions. Senior portraits need to be a print size must be a minimum of 1 1⁄2”X 2” and a head size of exactly 1” from the top of the hair to the bottom of the chin, 300dpi if delivered on CD. The background used must be medium blue or gray, formal attire expected. Formal attire means shirts and ties, sweaters, dresses or dress blouses. We will not accept a headshot with logos or printed words on a t-shirt. The yearbook staff has the right to deny any photo deemed inappropriate. To submit your senior photo for publishing go to: yearbookforever.com website. Enter Walled Lake Northern into the school name field. Select Walled Lake Western from the option below. Near the top of the page select the “Community Upload” option. To upload your senior photo the password is “knights” in all lower case. ALL senior portraits are due to the yearbook staff by 11/19/22.
The composite is handled by Prestige and is separate from yearbook portraits. As of last school year (grads of 22), to be included on the composite, you must have a headshot taken at Prestige. This information was provided in the previous email and all questions about the composite should be directed to Prestige. You may book your appointment here: Click here to book your appointment: http://www.prestigeportraits.com/studio.
The composites are delivered to be distributed at graduation and yearbooks will be printed to be distributed at registration for the following school year.
If you would like to purchase a yearbook or a senior tribute, please visit yearbookforever.com. Search Walled Lake Northern. From there, you are able to purchase a yearbook or a senior tribute. If you want to purchase a senior tribute, choose the size, upload the photos you'd like to use (make sure none of them have watermarks), and write your message. Pay for your tribute and you are done! The senior tributes are a beautiful way to honor your graduate.
Thank you for your support of the WLN yearbook program,
The WLN Yearbook Staff
