Senior Portraits and Yearbook Dedications

Senior Portraits and Yearbook Dedications


Congratulations on the successful completion of your junior year! Your senior year will encompass many exciting, once-in-a-lifetime events as I am sure you are well aware. 

One of the first senior activities you will engage in is getting your senior portraits made during the summer. Seniors will have three opportunities in the yearbook:

  • formal portraits
  • casual portraits
  • yearbook dedications

Please read below for detailed information pertaining each of these.


Formal Portraits:  
TCPICS is our official contracted photographer. Seniors are required to contact TCPICS to schedule a sitting for their formal portrait. You can either register online or call for an appointment. All formal portraits MUST come from TCPICS. Please have formal portraits taken no later than September 1. You will need to select the image(s) you intend to place in the yearbook at the time of your photo session. As a new option, TCPICS offers a casual sitting for the yearbook as well. Please call TCPICS or visit their website to schedule an appointment. Click here fore additional information.



Casual Portraits:  
A specific photographer is not required, however the portraits must be taken by a PROFESSIONAL photographer. As a new option, TCPICS is offering a casual sitting for the yearbook. If using a photographer other than TCPICS, please note that the high-quality images you select for publication should be e-mailed to the Teleios staff at teleios@mtparanschool.com directly from the photographer along with a signed release form stating terms of usage (permission to print in yearbook). Please have casual portrait and release form e-mailed to Teleios no later than September 1. Due to production deadlines, pictures submitted after the deadline will not be printed in the book. The following are a few suggested photographers that either have been or are currently affiliated with the MPCS community: 

  • Jamie Bogner ( jamieandson@gmail.com, 770.402.4671)
  • Carrie and Jonah Fisher (hello@itstheeveryday.com, 770.630.8572)

Please feel free to ask for additional local photographer suggestions.


Yearbook Dedications:  
Senior dedications are full or half pages in the yearbook where parents can leave a personal message and/or scripture for your graduating senior along with 3-10 photographs. These dedications are completed online through the Herff Jones website at www.yearbookordercenter.com beginning July 1, 2019. 

Enter 2365 for the Mount Paran Christian School code, and then click on "Buy a Yearbook Ad" to get started. Please have your senior's yearbook dedication completed and submitted by October 7, 2019 in order to avoid late fees. Due to production deadlines, no dedication ads can be accepted after October 21, 2019. 

While the above dates seem far off, the summer will pass quickly. Please schedule your appointments as soon as possible during the summer. Session times fill up quickly as TCPICS handles senior portraits for many other schools.

Richard Searle be reached via e-mail or at 770-578-0182 x 3709 should you have questions or concerns during the summer months. Again, congratulations on reaching this milestone!
