Dangerous Senior Portraits!

First of all, I think we've had enough rain. I know my basement could use a rest.

Of course, with all this water, it's a lot easier to find great Senior Portrait locations in the various parks around town. Last summer, we couldn't use all of our favorite spots because there was simply no water left in many of the creeks, and it looked pretty desolate in some areas!

Yesterday, we went out to one of the parks along the north bluffs for some great images of Nick next to an overflowing creek.

Nick, in an undisclosed location...

Of course, we do lots of Senior Portraits in and around various creeks and rivers,  but most of the time there's not that much danger of the Senior being swept out to sea.

Not so yesterday...


In the end, Nick survived and we got some really great Senior Portraits that his mom will love!

Summer is one of the BEST times for Senior Portraits... especially if you are in lots of activities during the year. AND, summer is the time for our Summer Senior Special - If you schedule your 2014 Senior Portrait before school starts, your Session Fee will be deducted from your package order! This could be a savings of $100 or more!

Please call the studio today (217-228-1385) to schedule yours.

What if the Weather's Bad?

Today is the last day of school in Quincy, so that means two things here at Coonrod Photography.

One: Today is my wife Jean's LAST DAY of teaching at Quincy Jr. High... HAPPY RETIREMENT Sweetheart!

Two: Today is the day that the class of 2014 can begin to call themselves, "Seniors".

Lots of Seniors like to schedule their Portrait Session in the summer before their final year of school... because that final year is usually pretty full! Especially for Seniors who are active in sports, or music, or theater -- or all of the above!

Most Seniors get outdoor portraits along with their studio session, and the first question they ask is, "What if the weather is bad?"

Well, of course, we usually just re-schedule... but who says bad weather is always...bad?
