senior portrait QUESTIONS?


Check out our Planning Page and our Pinterest Style Guide to get an idea of what will happen the day of your session and how to plan for it.

We’re sorry that you’re having problems but we’re here to help! Visit this page to view our troubleshooter.

It’s your senior year, so choose the session that fits you best. If you have your eye on just one scene, go Simple. If you’ve been looking forward to going all out, spring for Spoil Me Elite. Or you can always just go with the essentials with Most Popular. Check out all our options here.

Good question! For starters, bring several different outfits and accessories. Check out our Pinterest Style Guide for ideas of what to wear on each of your chosen scenes.

If you’re doing your own hair and makeup, bring supplies for touch-ups between scenes. The South in summer may not have your hair’s best interests in mind, but we’ll keep an eye out for it and give you plenty of time to freshen up.

This session is about you, so bring anything that shows off your personality and interests. Props could include athletic uniforms and equipment, musical instruments, cars and, yes, even pets.

Finally, don’t forget to bring something to wear underneath your tux or drape for the yearbook photo. Guys will need a plain white tee, and girls should bring a strapless or spaghetti-strap top.

We provide this for you! We have each school’s Cap and Gown as well as tassel at the studio. We also have sashes for students that are part of the honor society.

We’ll email you throughout the process to keep you updated on what’s next, and you can always give us a ring with any questions: 800.547.6237.

Tip: If you forget everything else, just remember to smile.

The minimum session fee includes a photo shoot for the yearbook as well as one in your cap and gown on an indoor scene of your choice, plus editing and viewing. Prints, packages and upgrades come with additional charges.

We’ll photograph you in multiple poses for your school yearbook photo. If your session takes place before your school’s deadline, you’ll make it in the yearbook! If you want to select your pose for the yearbook, we suggest having your session before school starts to make sure you beat all the deadlines. The closer you get to your school’ cut-off date, the more likely it is that Cady Studios will have to select your yearbook pose for you.

Don’t worry about drapes or tuxedos; we provide them. However, guys should bring a solid white t-shirt to wear underneath, and girls should bring a strapless or spaghetti strap top. (Tip: A pearl necklace makes a great accessory here, ladies.)

Simple. Bring your credit card here. (Payment is due at the time of booking.)

Most students take their senior portraits the summer between their junior and senior year, but book as soon as possible, because appointments fill up fast. Every school has a specific deadline for the last day you can be photographed for the yearbook, and for the last day you are able to select your own yearbook pose. We recommend booking in June and July to make sure you beat yearbook deadlines.


“Session” simply refers to your photo shoot at Cady Studios. It could range from a basic yearbook photo plus a cap and gown session to an all-out private photography experience including twelve locations and hair and makeup styling. Then, of course, there are plenty of options in between. You choose the one that fits your style.
