  1. The deadline for senior portraits is late November, 2021
  2. Cady Studios will have “road shoot" dates on campus in Fall 2021 (dates TBD).
  3. The Yearbook staff will only use Cady portraits for the senior section.
  4. Cady has a new studio opening on Powers Ferry, which should be more convenient than in previous years (John’s Creek, Acworth, etc).
  5. Students should begin booking dates as soon as possible.
  6. Simple sessions start at $30 + digital retouching fees and includes 2 scenes, including the formal/yearbook, cap and gown, and 1 studio scene of their choosing, so don’t feel like you HAVE to buy the Elite package with unlimited scenes for $399.
