senior portraits step-by-step guide

 Hansen Fine Portraits is proud to partner with Trinity Christian Academy and University High School  as your official school photographer. Because Hansen Fine Portraits is the contracted photographer it is our responsibility to provide the yearbook staff with your formal school portraits. We are obligated to meet their deadline of September 30th, 2017. Please review the steps below to ensure your images can be ready on time.

We welcome students from all schools, however, you will need to ensure that you have taken the required yearbook images with your school's contracted photographer. 


1. Choose a Session

Visit the SESSIONS page to decide which session you prefer. Your session will be scheduled for 30 minutes up to 2 hours depending on the type of session. Session payment is due when the appointment is scheduled. We accept all major credit cards, cash and check. 

2. schedule your session

We are now offering online scheduling for your convenience. If you need to pay via check or cash please visit our studio to schedule your session. We accept all major credit cards with online scheduling. Schedule your session in the SESSIONS area of the website.


3. arrive early

Plan to arrive early to your session for clothing changes. We provide the formal attire for your yearbook portrait. Ladies wear a black, off the shoulder drape. We recommend bringing a tank-style top to your session so the straps can be easily hidden under the drape. Gentlemen wear a white tuxedo shirt, a bow tie and a tuxedo jacket. We recommend bringing a white undershirt to your session to wear under the tuxedo shirt. 

4. preview your images

Visit the PRODUCTS area of the website to see what packages and products we offer. This section also contains the PREVIEW MY IMAGES link which will direct you to online previewing. Directions for online previewing will be emailed shortly after your session. Images will be posted for 14 days allowing time to decide which are your favorites for prints and gifts.  During your online preview window you will designate your yearbook image. 


5. preview appointment

Once you have had time to review your images online you may either place an order online or call for an in-studio preview session. Online ordering consists of the basic collections. For the most options schedule preview appointment. A consultant will view your favorite images with you and help you find the portrait package that best meets your needs. Package pricing is available in the COLLECTIONS section of the website. A minimum payment of half your order total is due at the preview appointment.

6. enjoy your images!

Share your images with friends and family. Check back in for graduation announcements and cap and gown portraits in the spring.
