Every Senior must be photographed by us for the portrait to be used in the 2019 RJHS yearbook. A specific background has been selected for uniformity. There is still the opportunity to be photographed at our studio including a full senior portrait experience with multiple outfits and outdoor portraits at a discounted price. For those of you just needing the yearbook photo, you will be scheduled a time in September or October while our photographer is there at the school. Boys must wear a suit and girls in Mass attire from the waist up.
Schools throughout the Denver Metro area have specific requirements for senior portraits to be submitted into the yearbook. For example:
The yearbook image must be on a specific indoor studio portrait background for all Regis Jesuit students. Seniors benefit by coming to our studio to get the yearbook photo taken with more time & attention to detail, plus they can take advantage of our exclusive outdoor studio at our same Denver location. We have sessions that include multiple outfits too.
On the other hand, Overland High School requires greenery in the background. Because our outdoor studio has lots of natural greenery, we can provide many options and expressions to choose from. Yet if graffiti or a more industrial look fits their style to be displayed in the home, we can also accomplish that during the same session.
Other specifics that vary from school to school is how the image is cropped, sized, and how it's delivered to the school. This process is something we have taken seriously for over 60 years. That's why we have been a trusted portrait studio by the high schools from the age of negatives through to digital. Yearbook advisors know that images coming from our studio will meet their requirements, will have amazing color and quality and will be delivered ON-TIME!
When selecting outfits for senior portraits we recommend that both student and parent choose something they like. Mom may want something a bit more formal where as the senior may like a more casual look. But don't forget about sports gear. Chances are this is how you have seen your son or daughter throughout their childhood. The vision of their uniform may bring back memories of all the practices, games, blood, sweat and tears. The dedication that not only they had towards their sport, but the dedication you had towards their interests will forever be remembered.
Every year we have an Artist incorporate the graduation year into our large graffiti wall. This has become a tradition with our high school seniors and makes for great graduation announcements and/or party invitations when the time comes. The best time of day for this background is the morning.
You will most likely start getting information from the school around October or November, to purchase the formal graduation announcement. If you choose that option, consider including wallet size photographs. Your friends and family will enjoy it! If you would prefer something a bit more unique, we will be offering custom cards starting in January. The cards range in size from 4.5x5 up to 5x7 and can be double sided. You may include multiple poses and any text you prefer.
We look forward to creating something for you!

Portraits require attention to detail. It's not just about the lighting, both on the subject and on the background, but the positioning of the subject, choice of background and the details in the clothing. To see a clip of the photographer working with Jack to capture this image, find SeniorPix Bettinger on Facebook. Dan worked with Jack to get a variety of expressions to get one that Jack liked the best.
At Bettinger Photography we have specifically built our outdoor studio for portrait photography. With a variety of sets, you can come to one location and get so many different looks. You will also have a dressing room for outfit changes so you don't have to worry about changing in a park or in your car. Check out the rest of our website for more info.
As you start planning your summer remember to arrange time for Senior Portraits! The Class of 2019 season has already officially started. We have seen students from High Schools all across the Denver Metro area and as far away as Ignacio Colorado. Few spots remain at our June price and July is also getting full. Make sure you know the deadline for your yearbook image to be turned into your school and call to schedule.
Fresh flowers have now been planted in our outdoor studio garden. Enjoy this area as just one of many options for your senior portraits at Bettinger Photography. The first or last session of the day is best to take advantage of the spectacular colors, so keep that in mind when you call to schedule. To see more flower portraits, click on #flowers below.
