It’s that time of year!!!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!!

Well it is that time of year when graduations from schools are in full bloom! The hard work of school is over for a lot of these students and they are ready to join the rest of us out in the real world of work!

I was shooting photos this past Saturday at Spoon River College’s annual graduation. One of the things that I really like about the way that they end the graduation is by having all the professors line up on either side of the departing students. You’ll see high fives, hugs and tears from the graduates and professors alike and it’s really a very great way to end the ceremony! This year I saw all of the nursing students had decorated their graduation caps with some bling and other goodies! Here’s one of my photos from Saturday with the nursing graduates, professors and the crowd of family and friends!!!!

Thanks for checking out my work as always and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!

Graduation Time

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

One of the fun gigs that I’ve gotten to shoot these past few years is the graduation at Spoon River College. For those of you not from Central Illinois, SRC is a local junior college located in Canton, Il.

SRC has a very cool tradition at the end of the graduation ceremony that I’ve only seen them do. All of the professors will form up in two lines and the graduates will walk down the center of that tunnel. As the graduates are walking through the tunnel of professors, you’ll see “high fives”, handshakes, fist bumps, hugs and tears. It’s a very emotional time for the graduates and their professors.

Here’s one of my shots from Saturday’s graduation at SRC!

I hope that you have a great week to come and thanks for taking the time to check out my work!
