Senior Pictures

CLASS OF 2022 – Senior Yearbook Pictures Due by October 29, 2021– You may be contacted by Rowland Studios to have your senior portrait taken; however, Rowland Studios has been in partnership with Ballard High School for many years. Your senior portrait for the yearbook needs to meet the requirements listed below:

  • Submit a head and shoulders shot – fully clothed – in color and one-inch head size. Overall, the dimensions should be 1 ½ inches wide by 2 inches high, and 300 d.p.i. and should be sent as a jpeg file (standard for magazines). Most photos are usually 1 MB or more in size. Do not crop your photo.
  • The background may be any color except black or white.
  • No hats, props, logos, pets, or horizontal shots – only you in the i.d. photo!
  • Please submit your selected photo (meeting all requirements) and your students preferred first and last name
  • All photos must be digital copies that can be emailed.
  • Please submit the original photo, not a copy.


If you do not submit a photo to the yearbook staff by the deadline of October 29, 2021, the yearbook staff will use your student ID photo instead – (take your school photos seriously!)
