I have known Kyle forever, he is a great guy and my kids love him.  He assists me with weddings and other shoots at times and has a great eye and has gotten the technical stuff down pretty quickly.  Kyle also has his own DJ service and I have seen him in action and he does a great job.   Here are a few of my fave’s from his session.  Some were taken at Swan Lake.




kyle just recently joined the KL Fire Dept blog-hindssept2007_020.jpg

Samantha came along and got in a few picturesblog-hindssept2007_006bw.jpg

Kris (Kyle’s mom) asked me as we walked back to the car, “Is it always this much fun when you do senior pictures.”  I am like yeah most of time.  Really it is kind of nuts that I get paid to ride around in a golf cart and laugh my butt off.  Below is a photo of me checking to make sure I got some good pictures.  Thanks for taking it Kris, and thank you Kyle and the rest of the amazing Seniors I have had lately for allowing me to take your pictures.

Here are a few studio shots of Chris and a couple we managed to hurry and get before the mosquitos carried us away.  We hope to do another session in the spring on the football field and other spots around Walkerton.


Chris also brought his girlfriend along and I just love this shot…bloglawlersept2007_020.jpg

Hamlet Fire Deptment Training

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Baugh Midwest (affiliate of SYSCO) had a barn that was in terrible shape and needed to be burned down so they inlisted the help of the department.  I have to say even though I have seen several buildings burned down it amazes me just how fast a building becomes a full blaze.  I will put the times taken next to some of the images.hfd7.jpg  5:25

Grace (103 yrs old)

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

Jennifer from Starke Memorial Hospital contacted me a couple weeks to take a picture of a 103 yr old lady for a billboard for their home health care.  Well, I knew it had to be Grace Burch.  (who else is 103)  Grace was a dear friend to my Grandmother who is no longer with us and she is also my aunt Vicki’s  grandmother.  grace1.jpg

Also pictured with Grace is one of her home health care provider’s Shelia.
