Treats will also be passed out to all of our little trick or treaters.

Sylvania Senior Photographer Southview Senior Photographer
Northview Senior Photographer Senior Photographers in Toledo

Class of 2014

Kurt is still booking appointments for the Class of 2014 Senior Portraits. Now that sunset is increasingly earlier each day, after-school appointments are limited to one (1) per day with 4pm the latest he can schedule an outdoor session. His weekends are also extremely limited because of weddings and other previously contracted events. Yearbook deadlines will be here before you know it, so don't wait. Portraits must be ordered and all session fees must be paid in full before yearbook photos will be submitted to your school. To guarantee that you meet your yearbook deadline, please schedule your appointment at least three (3) weeks prior to your school's yearbook deadline. Call Kurt at (419) 885-7153 to book your child's Senior Photo session.

For your convenience, these are the deadlines for submitting yearbook photos for the schools that I have so far:

Bedford High School, Temperance, MI: December 1, 2013
Blissfield High School, Blissfield, MI: January 31, 2014
Fowlerville High School, Fowlerville, MI: January 10, 2014
Northview High School, Sylvania, OH: October 25, 2013
Novi High School, Novi, MI: November 15, 2013
Saline High School, Saline, MI: November 1, 2013
Sand Creek High School, Sand Creek, MI: December 2, 2013
Southview High School, Sylvania, OH: November 27, 2013

Whiteford Agricultural High School, Ottawa Lake, MI: November 1, 2013
Whitmer High School, Toledo, OH: November 27, 2014

For these High Schools, you MUST go to your designated photographer for your yearbook submission photo. Most of their yearbook only sessions are FREE. However, you do not need to purchase portraits from them, nor do you have to have a full portrait session.

Notre Dame Academy, Toledo, OH: October 31, 2013
St. John's Jesuit High School, Toledo, OH: January 17, 2014

On another note, yearbook photos may not be the same as the school composite photos. Some schools have a photographer to come to their school to do the senior composite photos during the school day. This is to make sure all the students have the same background. Some schools allow the senior yearbook photos to be used no matter where they were taken. Each school has different guidelines for the senior composite portrait so be sure to check with your school. There usually is a minimal charge for this for each student. The senior composite photo is the "Class" photos you see hanging in the halls with the tiny pictures of all of the students for each graduating year.
