North Oldham High School

Class of 2023 Seniors!!

All yearbook photos must be taken by September 30, 2022 to be in the yearbook.

We have opened more time slots in our calendar to accommodate the students who have yet to have their photo taken, including staying open later, opening at 8am and added a Sunday. Please schedule your session ASAP, and tell your friends as well!

Congrats, you’ve finally made it!! We are so excited to be part of the North Oldham High School team again this year. Your experience at Shanna Simpson Photography will be much different than that of most NOHS alumni, or anyone going to other studios for their senior yearbook portrait. We are dedicated to making sure you are satisfied with your senior tux or drape picture BEFORE you leave our studio. We understand (although you may not at this time) that this photo will last a lifetime. This yearbook image will be what your classmates will look through in years to come. What your children and grandchildren will see when they look through your yearbook and maybe what is most important, what they will use at the class reunions.

During your tux/drape session you will be able to see your photo to make sure you are happy with the way you look, and make any adjustments as you see fit. We will keep going until you are satisfied with your image.

Remember your yearbook photo cost nothing to you unless you order prints, which we know you will want to because you’re going to love them!

Please read below for all of the information you need!

How do I schedule my session?

We have taken all of the hassel booking for you. We have it set up where you can schedule everything online. You can see what days and times we have open and schedule when is best for you.

Keep scrolling and you will you find the link as well as more senior options just for NOHS Seniors!

How long will this take?

It’s not going to take long, about 10-15 minutes. It really depends on how long it takes for us to get that perfect shot for you. We block of 20 minutes for you.

Will my images be retouched?

When booking your yearbook session, you will have the option to add on retouching. When doing this your photo will be retouched before it is uploaded to the online gallery, and will be retouched in the yearbook. If at a later date you decide you would like retouching for prints you purchase you can always add it on when purchasing.

What do I need to bring with me?

It does not matter what you wear on the bottom, this is only waist up.


You will need to wear a cami or another shirt that is easily slipped off your shoulders because it is for your formal drape photo. Remember to bring any jewelry that you want to wear, a lot of times there are family pearls that girls want to wear in these timeless photos. Also don’t forget anything you may need for last minute touchups. (ie: finishing powder, lipstick or hairspray). Also keep in mind about tan marks for maybe the week or so before your session.


You will need to wear a plain white t-shirt so it will not show through the white dress shirts. I of course have the dress shirts, tux jackets and the bowties. Also remember to bring anything you need for last minute touchups.

Can I order my photo?

Absolutley! You will already know what photo you have chosen before you leave. You will be given a link and a password that is unique only to you. You can purchase your photo from home, and your order will be shipped to directly to your home. This also works for anyone who has out of town family members or for anyone who wishes to purchase more prints down the line.

Who needs to come to the appointment?

Only the senior NEEDS to come to the appointment, but we always welcome the parents. This is a fun time and always a good memory to be made. PLUS, this is when you pick out your which image is going into the yearbook. YES, I will say it again, THIS is when the image for the yearbook is chosen.

Do you do normal senior sessions too?

Of course we do! That’s our speciality. Here is our portfolio. When you schedule your regular senior session with us, your tux/drape is done during that session, you will not have to come in for two seperate appointments. Also, we offer 20% off of our senior sessions for NOHS seniors! There is more information below.

What if I don’t like my Picture?

You will. How can I say this so confidently? Because I know you will. That’s why I say it will take 10-15 minutes and not 3-5. I keep taking your photo until you like it. You see your photos as we are taking them. Doing this allows us to be able to tweak as we go. If you have a hair out of place, if you don’t like your hair on that shoulder, if your tie is crooked. The things that could make you hate your yearbook photos from another photographer that only took 2 for you have to choose from are endless, BUT we keep going until you have something that YOU want to submit.


Not only are we here for your traditional yearbook photos, but when you make your appointment you can also schedule to do your fun senior session as well. We are known throughout Louisville as being fun, trendy and most of all, for letting your uniqueness show through. You can do everything all at once.  Maybe the best part of the whole thing… You get 20% off your session fee just for being a NOHS class of 2022 Senior!  (When booking your appointment make sure you use the code NOHS)
