To all members of the Class of 2022:

Summer is coming and your senior year is just around the corner! The staff of the GMHS yearbook, Archive, would like to take this time to remind you to schedule an appointment to have your senior portrait taken for the 2022 edition of the yearbook. While you may choose to have your personal graduation photos taken in whatever pose or background you may like, in order to create a uniform appearance in the yearbook’s Seniors Section, we would request that you have your yearbook portraits taken at Purdon House of Photography, located at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Lynoak Avenue in Shillington, just a short 2 block walk from the high school. All senior portraits that are published in the yearbook will be free of charge, but they must be taken at the Purdon Studio.

APPOINTMENTS: Please use the provided Sign Up Genius link:

to schedule an appointment for your senior portrait. The sooner that you are photographed, the sooner you will receive your senior portraits. Please notify Purdon directly at (610)777-3742 if you are unable to keep your appointment. Missed appointments without notification will result in a $10 charge.

Purdon offers two (2) portrait packages to Governor Mifflin seniors. While you may choose not to purchase additional photos from Purdon for your personal use, Option “A” must still be selected in order to have your portrait appear in the yearbook:

Option “A”: This is your yearbook pose; no fee will be charged.

  • Four (4) different poses will be taken; no wardrobe/outfit changes will be permitted
  • Purdon Studio will choose the best image, retouch it and forward it to the yearbook staff

Option “B”: Personal Photo Package; a fee of $20 will be charged.

  • Twelve to sixteen poses will be taken with up to three wardrobe changes
  • Different background choices will be available
  • If desired, special props can be used, Please bring your preferred props to the appointment
  • Proofs will be posted through a secure online link to be reviewed and approved by you and your parents

Purdon Photography is not only the official photographer of the GMHS Yearbook, but also a strong supporter of the Governor Mifflin community. While we hope that you will consider using Purdon for your graduation portraits, you are under no obligation to purchase any photos taken.

Senior Portrait Tips

Gentlemen: Dress shirts with collars; ties, sport coats and slacks or suit.

Ladies: Skirts or slacks with coordinated tops; solid-colored dresses.

Do your wear glasses? If you have tinted glasses, you may want to consider not wearing them for your photos as the lenses will appear dark and obscure your eyes on the photos.

Do you have braces? If you prefer, you may schedule your appointment after the removal of your braces.

Planning on tanning? While suntans look healthy and beautiful in photos, sunburns do not. Use good judgment regarding sun exposure prior to your appointment. Remember, these photos will be in color.

Thank you and best wishes as you enter your senior year,

 Mr. Kase,
Archive Advisor
