Fall senior photo deadlines are sooner than you think (Clackamas senior photographer)

I’m definitely a summer person. I love being outside, going for evening walks and swimming any chance I can get. So I hate to think about back-to-school just as much as the next person. But alas, the time has come for Clackamas area high school seniors and their parents to start thinking about one right of passage: it’s time to book senior portraits.

Many high schools’ yearbook due dates are in fall, and there are many steps you’ll need to take: schedule an photo session, prepare for said photo session by planning outfits/haircuts, etc., choose a non-rainy day, have a great experience during the photo session, wait while your photographer edits your photos, choose one for the yearbook, and then provide it to the school staff in whatever format they need it.

This all takes time, and rushing the process isn’t in your best interest. I recommend booking a photo session soon.

Here are some of local, North Clackamas and Clackamas County due dates for your reference. However, please refer to official information from your school and please read all specifications carefully. Please note that senior ads, quotes and all other senior year/yearbook needs are handled completely separately. It is your responsibility to make sure your photos is submitted before the deadline.

Whoa, I'm not usually all business like this. If you have any questions about how to make the process as painless as possible, feel free to email or comment below.

Gladstone High School Senior Photographer | Cody

I had such a good with Cody and his mom during his senior photo session a few weeks back. We met at Gladstone High School, and then I jumped in their Jeep and we were on our way. We explored all the nooks and alleyways of Gladstone and Oregon City. Cody was a great sport! We scrambled down a pretty steep hillside to get some photos down by the Clackmas River, and the photos were definitely worth it. 

Cody is an outdoorsman, a swimmer and honestly one of the kindest young men I've ever met. I'm so excited to see where the next few years take him.

Shelby is my homegirl/Centennial High School, class of 2013 (Portland, Oregon senior photographer)

The eldest daughter of a wonderful family, Shelby is kind, thoughtful and so sweet to her siblings. She’s also a great athlete, super hardworking and fun to be around. By the time we shot her senior photos, she’d already been in front of my lens for some family photos and as a bridesmaid for her mom and dad’s wedding. She was a pro.

We met at Laurelhurst Park, an expansive and diverse park for photographs or for hanging out in Southeast Portland. Shelby brought her best friend along to make the day even more fun and to help keep her energy up on a cold, winter morning. (Thanks for holding my sorry-looking reflector Jessica!) After an outfit change, Shelby’s amazing mom went and got us all hot chocolate to keep us warm between shots. (Love ya Tiffany!)

Shelby helped me realize that senior photography is one of my absolute favorite things to do. High schoolers are fun to be around and always make me laugh. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a bit of a teenager at heart myself; someday I’ll be too old to talk about boys, laugh at fake moustaches and dance like crazy to Usher, but today is not that day!
