Q: What's up with the high school requiring its seniors to have their senior portraits done by Prestige Portraits?
A: According to the information provided to the seniors by Payson High School, the required photo by Prestige Portraits by Lifetouch for the seniors is only for the yearbook. It is being required in order to make sure all the senior yearbook pictures have consistent backgrounds, head size and color quality. The seniors are not obligated to buy these photos, but they have the opportunity to do so. They may also have four different poses for a fee. The sitting fee is not part of the purchase price of a photo package. The school is requiring the photos be taken if the student is to be included in the graduate section of the 2003-2004 yearbook.
