+ What should I wear for my yearbook portrait?
If your school requires tux/drape/gown, this will be provided by My Legacy Matters.
Ladies may want to wear and/or bring a top with straps that can be pulled to the shoulders of the drape. Gentlemen may want to wear and/or bring a white t-shirt to wear under the tux shirt.
If your school allows Student Choice, it must be within school guidelines. My Legacy Matters cannot be responsible if a school does not accept your image due to attire chosen by the student.
Note: Please check the yearbook requirements and deadlines for your school. It is the responsibility of the student to be photographed and make yearbook pose selection before the deadlines. Students not making their personal yearbook pose selection by the deadline dates will have the lab default image selected.
We reserve the right to select to meet deadlines.
+ Can I set up a payment plan for my senior portrait order?
We accept payment by cash, check, money order or credit card. Returned checks will incur fees allowed by the State of California
Your use of a credit card allows for a payment plan through the credit card company.
+ What should I wear/bring for my personal outfits?
Long sleeves and solid colors (to keep the focus on you). Casual and Formal outfits.
Letterman jacket, uniforms, class ring, and props that reflect who you are and how you like to spend your free time.
Make-Up and hair supplies (for touch-ups only), and any accessories.
+ What about glasses?
If you wear glasses regularly, wear them during the portrait session. However, glasses sometimes cause distortions, reflections, and elimination of detail in the eye area of your portraits. We will make every attempt to minimize the glare and reflection from your lenses. To eliminate any concerns check with your Optometrist to see if you can borrow frames without lenses. We do offer Custom Retouchng to remove glare with aditional cost.
+ What about my appearance?
In preparation for your session: Check your outfits for wrinkles and place them in a garment bag. Wrinkles will show in portraits. Do your nails (clear or neutral colors work best). Important for any close-ups with hands showing. Gentlemen, please shave as you normally would. Limit your exposure to the sun a few days before your photo session to avoid sunburns or tan lines. Harsh tan lines are not included in the Basic Retouching. Avoid getting a new hairstyle or cut right before your session. Instead, select a comfortable style you know looks good. Make sure to get a good night's sleep. Do your hair and makeup before you arrive. Avoid using glitter or sparkle make up on the face. Apply concealer and powder to minimize any blemishes and then stop worrying! My Legacy Matters retouching will eliminate small blemishes and under-eye circles on your final order. Custom retouching is also available for minimal charge.

Your session fee pays for time spent with your photographer(s) at your session; yearbook formal attire when required; a yearbook image for your senior yearbook pages. Plus all sessions include a personal access code for viewing, sharing and ordering senior portraits on line.
