The Portrait Studio sells out each season, so don’t wait to book your appointment!
At the Co-op Portrait Studio, we’re proud to offer great quality graduation prints at a fantastic price! Our studio is located at the Main Co-op location off Guadalupe Street, on the Lower Level.
We’ve got three basic packages (Silver, Gold and Family) – You may then upgrade to what you need with any of our add-on packages. Choose what’s best for you!
The photo studio uses green-screen technology to insert a background into the photo. We’ve got several background options available. Check out our portfolio for ideas and some of our favorite customer photo shoots!

What to bring:
What to wear:
Do you do re-touching on the photo?
Included in the portrait package price is light re-touching. Additional re-touching is available for a surcharge, and you may discuss the specifics with your photographer during the session.
Can I get my photos more quickly after my appointment?
Yes, we can expedite the production on your order for a fee. For this cost, the photographers can prepare your images and have them available for pick up or ready for shipping within two business days. We cannot expedite photos during Graduation Weekend.
Can I choose more than one background for my prints?
For each set of prints (a package), we will print the same image (pose and background) for the entire collection of prints. If you would like to have two different poses, purchase one of our add-on packages for the second pose or background.
Can I buy the digital copy of my photo?
Yes, you may purchase the high-res digital copy from your appointment. You will need to discuss this with the photographer during your session.
Do you provide a proof prior to printing the photos?
Although you are able to see yourself (and the different poses) during your photo session, we shoot using green-screen technology, which prohibits us from providing a full composite proof prior to printing. We are able to email a low-res green-screen background photo to parents if needed. This may add additional production time onto your order.
Can I bring props to the photo shoot?
We try our best to accommodate any special requests from our customers. If you have a special request, contact us prior to your appointment.
Can I have a family member in my photos?
Please contact us prior to scheduling your appointment and we’ll see what we can do to accommodate your needs.
I was unable to schedule an appointment during the season and now you are completely booked. What do I do?
We typically have a Walk-In photo day for customers who were unable to schedule an appointment. We also have a waitlist service, please contact the Graduation Department for more information.
