I've been taking and collecting
photos for some of these 2013 Seniors since they were in elementary. For others,
this senior group photo taken 10/30/2012
may be the first time they have been before my lens. By the time the 2013
grad pages (one for each graduate) go online at www.cvilleok.com on May 1,
2013, I will hopefully have a representative set of photos for each summarizing
their Collinsville school experience. In order for those pages to be the best
they can be, I could use the help of each student and/or parent over the next
I received a list of ~173
senior names in 2012 (which I know by experience since 2004) will change considerably
before the final pages are updated after graduation in May 2013.
From students and parents
I need additional photos submitted to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
that I wouldn't already have from CHS sports, band, or other activities which
you see updated daily on cvilleok. These photos can be of any (family friendly)
subject ...including work, hobby, car, pet, family, friends, favorite teacher,
church, scouts, ... etc. I don't have a set limit how many or when but lets
say any more than ~6 and you are likely wasting my time and yours ...and the
sooner I get them the more time I have to organize and edit them into place.
If you take additional "favorite" photos later, you can still send
them along. I have draft pages started for this year's students (only on my
computer until May). I hope to meet with each senior in the coming weeks to
show the progress so far (3rd grade through about half of sophomore years
photos from cvilleok) and ask them for photos and suggestions. If you have
prints but no scanner or email ... let me know.
Family Messages: Starting with the 2012 pages I no longer sell advertisements
for senior pages but will accept (for free) brief congratulations messages
from family sent via email (but keep them very brief please). And there is
never a cost to students or parents for these pages.
Note: These pages
have typically had photos of the student only ... but I'm always happy to
receive photos, art work, messages, etc created by the student also to improve
the uniqueness of their pages.
Note: I have the
yearbook (LifeTouch) photos for seniors already on their pages. If you have
senior photos made elsewhere please send me copy of your favorite. If you
want me to take one (for free) just let me know, but note I am not a fancy
been on Facebook for a few years now and have been friended by a remarkable
number of CHS students. I don't ask to be friends, but accept when I recognize
a Collinsville student (or parent). I have been fasciniated by the variety
of photos that I have seen of (& by) many of you. When I see a good Facebook
photo I might add to the student's page but they are welcome to replace if
they don't like my choice.
