Have the students use their own ideas on how they would like to dress up for their portrait shot. You can suggest various things such as dressing up to highlight their hobby, some important event at school, nickname or how people will best remember them at school. Don’t let these shots be dry as these will make your yearbook fun to browse and read. Also you can set up a webpage on Google Picassa, Snapfish or any other photo sharing website for students to contribute their own pictures for the yearbook and you can even pick some student pictures from there.

One final piece of advice is that take a lot of pictures throughout the school year at various events, assemblies, sports meet, etc so that you have lot of pictures to pick from. You should not wait until the end of school year to start working on the yearbook pictures, as it will be too late then. For the best yearbook pictures, start early, take lot of pictures, assign someone to cover each school event, and then filter through these pictures to select the best.
