UPDATE: What do I do if I missed senior portraits?

Please contact Barksdale to make an appointment at their studio, conveniently located in Aston. Just like the in-school portrait session, there is no fee for your studio session.

Please schedule this appointment for early in the summer. It takes 4-6 weeks for proofs to arrive, and this will help you to determine if you’ll need re-takes in September.

Our retakes are currently scheduled for September 13-14 at the school. Please watch for information later in summer 2022 about scheduling information.

When and where will these portraits happen?

We will have senior portrait sittings ON SITE in the Photo Studio (223) at Haven on June 6, 7, 8, 9.

On Monday, June 6 and Wednesday, June 8, the sitting hours are during the school day.

On Tuesday, June 7 and Thursday, June 9, the sitting hours are in the afternoon/evening, from 3:30-7:45 p.m.

This means you have the flexibility to choose whether you want to take your photos during school, or whether you want to go home, get ready, and come back.

Although there is time to photograph the entire class, the schedule has limited availability at the times you want—and we may not be able to add additional slots. Book your sitting today!

How do I schedule my senior portrait sitting?


Use the link below to schedule your portraits. Each senior needs to schedule their senior portraits at the time that works best for you.

TIP: When you complete the form, use a non-school email address that you check regularly. Barksdale will send a scheduling reminder to this email address. (Your school email address cannot receive external emails.)

How much does it cost?

It’s free! There is no fee for your senior portrait sitting.

Barksdale will send you proofs of your photos after your sitting, and your family will have the option to purchase photos if you choose.

You’ll also be able to choose your 2023 Haven Yearbook photo from the proofs of your formal poses. Barksdale will supply this photo to our yearbook team—again, absolutely free of charge.

What do I wear?

NEW THIS YEAR: You’ll have a casual pose! Come dressed in your favorite outfit, your sports uniform, or any other attire that you’d like to wear for this casual pose.

For your formal poses: The tux or formal drape will be provided by the photographer. Please wear a solid white t-shirt to wear under the tux or a dark-colored strapless shirt/camisole to wear under the drape.

Barksdale offers the following tips to get ready for your portrait:

Wait. Why am I taking these photos when I’m still a junior?

Senior photos normally take place in the late spring of your junior year. This allows time for a re-take session in the early fall, and time for you to select your yearbook poses early enough that we can put the 2023 book together.

We haven’t had a ‘normal’ year for awhile. But this year, we are hoping to get the entire Class of 2023 photographed during these June dates! 

Your days of waiting in line for uncomfortable school photos that you forgot about until you were dragged out of your English class are over. These senior portraits are… quite a bit nicer than that! And you’ll get to choose the photos that best represent you from several different poses. 

What about retakes?

We’ll have retakes scheduled in the early fall—September 13-14. This will be the only re-take session at Strath Haven.

What if I have more questions?
