Good Morning Class of 2023 students and families,
I am so excited and looking forward to the class of 2023 leading EWG High School next year! They have been very impressive since the day they entered high school and I know they will continue to be. One of the first official acts of being seniors is to get your senior portrait taken for the yearbook over the summer. I am thrilled to announce we have a new official photographer that will be working with you this year! We have contracted with Catherine Hellman studios for our senior portraits, the Prom, homecoming dances and our graduation next June 10 at the Ryan Center. The studio will begin by providing us with 136 available sessions. You will receive an email with how to book your session so please look for it and do so as quickly as you can so you do not miss having your portrait included in the 2023 Senior section of the yearbook. I am including the contact information for the studio for your reference. You will be getting it in their email to you but having extra information will not hurt. The information that follows will also come directly from the studio too.
You will have three different session options you may choose from:
1. Complimentary Yearbook Session - All sessions will be done at the high school in Room 202 select days in July & August during the hours of 9 am - 1pm. There will be no Saturday appointments. You will receive a minimum of 4 images with various backgrounds and different poses. We also will take cap and gown photos at this time. You will be able to view your images within 7 days on an online gallery where you will select your photo choice for the yearbook and also be able to order portraits. Be sure to schedule ASAP when you receive your email.
2. Location Session at EWG High School - All done at your Exeter West Greenwich High School. You will receive a minimum of 24 images with multiple different backgrounds. You may choose 2 outfits and the session will last 30 minutes. They will also take cap and gown photos at this time. This session must be paid at time of scheduling and if inclement weather is forecasted, they will contact you to reschedule. The fee for this session is $65. These sessions are done in the afternoon hours during the week for the best lighting outdoors. You will be contacted on the exact meeting location 1 day prior to the session. Don't delay schedule it as soon as you hear from them!
3. Goddard Park Location Session - All sessions are done at the Beautiful Goddard Memorial State Park in Warwick, RI. A 30 minute session, 2 outfits and cap and gown. A minimum of 24 images with multiple different backgrounds. This session must be paid at the time of scheduling and again, if the forecast inclement weather we will contact you to reschedule. The fee for this session is $85. These sessions are done in the afternoon for best lighting outdoors. You will be contacted 1 day prior to discuss the exact meeting location in the park.
Do you have a special spot in mind? The beach you've loved since childhood, your home, or maybe a vacation spot you love. We can accommodate that too but you will need to call the studio at 401-822-4184 to schedule. As these are custom and often take up to 3 hours of time the session fee will be $200 due at time of booking.
Yes! You can do a yearbook and a location session so feel free to schedule both! Portraits from any session may be used for your yearbook photo.
