Having a senior moment…

Senior Portraits

Do you have an upcoming or graduating Senior in your life? It’s time to have a Senior moment, as in Senior Portraits. Personally, I did not have Senior Portraits done when I graduated from high school. Photos were not important to me as a young man. Little did I know, when I grew up how much I would have loved to have some memories of me in print, doing the things I loved to do ‘back in the day’. I loved playing guitar and baseball, and listening to rock and roll music. That was all there was as far as I knew. My senior yearbook picture is hilarious, but I’m grateful to have a copy of it so I can show my kids and get a good laugh.

But, today’s Senior Portraits are so much more than those from back in the day. Today’s Seniors want to be captured in their full essence, either capturing their beauty, their athleticism, their creativity, or their academicism.

Here we were honored to photograph Athena who graduated in 2018 and is on her way to a four year degree in the Bay Area. Her beauty was stunning and we found this amazing purple foliage that fit her perfectly.

You have a choice for who you use for Senior Portraits, regardless of what your school might say! Contact us today and get started on your own journey through our boutique style photography service and enjoy heirloom quality prints to go with your Senior Portraits.

We’d love to know a unique way you would like to be captured! Give us a comment below and receive a special gift.

Dramatic Lighthouse Metal Print…

Coquille River Lighthouse is a lighthouse located near Bandon, OR, USA. This beautiful, yet dramatic print will not rust or fade. It is printed on aluminum metal with a sawtooth hanger. The metal print will appear to float about 3/4″ form the wall. Some fun facts from Wikipedia about the Coquille River Light House. Get it at a tremendous 65% off during our second lighthouse flash sale!

The light was originally built with a Daboll trumpet for its foghorn, which was used as the light’s fog signal for several years. However, at certain times due to specific weather conditions, the sound of the trumpet would fail at sea, and in 1910 the trumpet was replaced by a more reliable fog siren. While mariners liked the new signal, many Bandon residents did not. The siren would eventually be removed along with the Fresnel lens after the light’s decommissioning.

Over the next 37 years, the condition of the light deteriorated due to neglect and vandalism, until 1976, when its first major restoration began. However, by this time, the keepers quarters and other outbuildings had deteriorated past the point of repair, and were eventually removed. In 1991, a new solar powered light was installed in the tower.

Boutique photography…huh?

We get a lot of questions asking what the heck a boutique style photography experience is. Well, it’s just that…

Merriam Webster defines it best as;

Boutique : a small company that offers highly specialized services or products

When choosing SQPortraits you are choosing a small business that caters to unique clients desiring a unique experience wanting specialized, high quality wall displays and exclusive session locations.

In the industry many photographers are labeled as “shoot and burn” meaning they shoot a ton of photos and burn to a CD for their client. These are often lower priced options, standard point and click shots, and work for many people. Our boutique experience includes an in home consultation covering discussions about where your wall display will hang, designing the shoot around your decor, measuring your space to ensure you get the right sized prints for proper viewing and suggestions on best wardrobe.

We move on to a specialized session day which we’ll write about later and a video slide show and rating ordering session to help you select the perfect final images.

We top off the experience with in home delivery and installation of your final art! This is our favorite day and will be yours too!
