YearbookLife’s Selfie Portraits

Missing your school photographer this year? Not sure how to include portraits in the yearbook?

We have a solution: Selfie Portraits

Our Selfie Portrait Program allows students, parents and staff to take their own selfie for use in your school yearbook. We then download the photos to your yearbook software so every portrait can be displayed in the yearbook as it always has.

Unlike traditional school pictures, you can take as many selfie portraits as you like until you get just the right one.

All for only $250 for the complete package for established YearbookLife customers. All other inquiries, please contact us for pricing and details.

Here’s How It Works

  1. Send us your student and staff roster in .csv or Excel format.
  2. We will set up your school’s custom portrait portal.
  3. Email or text the portal link to your students and staff. Instructions appear on screen explaining how to take and submit their selfie portrait.
  4. Review and Approve each picture, or reject pictures that aren’t appropriate. You can send messages through the system explaining why a picture was rejected, if email addresses are provided.
  5. Once all portraits have been submitted, or your portrait deadline has arrived, we will export  the images from your site and upload them to your yearbook design software for you to add to your yearbook design.

That’s it! You will have all your portraits to begin your yearbook design.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Announce a School Picture Day! Just like in the past, when a photographer would come to the school, announce a Picture Day where all students will take and submit their pictures.
  2. Review submitted pictures each week.
  3. Announce a Final Submission Date so no one submits a picture too late.
  4. Establish Rules for Picture Day so students have parameters (maybe you want them to wear school colors, or maybe you don’t want them wearing hats, etc.)
