Never too old or big to sit on dad’s lap.  Although I am thinking Eric is way too big.  He’s got to be like 6’5″ or so, but that doesn’t stop him.  So glad I had my camera ready to grab this shot.

Thanks gang for allowing me to photograph your family again, I had fun.  I think I captured all the fun stuff at grandma and grandpa’s house (the kittens, garden, pool, tire swings)

PS  I went to school with Eric, Dave and Tara.  Also Dave and Eric’s grandparents live just down the road from me, the stopped over and I got some pictures of them too.  So glad, you guys will cherish those too.

Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Congrats to all 57 Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Indiana Senior Photographer www.photographybyjayme.com

TO VIEW THE PHOTO LARGER PLEASE CLICK HERE or you can go see the big picture in person at the Starke County Library in Knox (across from the Knox middle school)  It will also be on display at the 4-H fair and then will make its rounds to 1st Source Bank and to all three schools.

Last night at the Starke County library in Knox we unveiled the big picture that will go on display around the county.  In case you are wondering how the kids are chosen… there are 20 students from each school picked by their principal.  I asked the principals to give me to top overall students.  I want kids that are active at their school in clubs, sports and that are doing well academically.  This is a huge honor to be a part of this elite group.

My mom snapped this picture of me after I took the black cover off and I thought I did a good job looking like one of those girls on the game shows so I thought I should post in hopes I get spotted by a talent scout.

Courtney posed for her mom’s camera with the big picture, so I had to get a shot of her too.  She is pointing to herself.  She cracks me up.

I want to say big thanks to Judy Caudill and 1st Source Bank for being a big supporter of the Super Senior Project.  They donated Two $50 savings bonds.  I donated a small scholarship and the winners were chosen at random because all the student are deserving of winning.

Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011

Thanks to all the students and parents that came out last night.  The library said there was approximately 70 people with our group.  Since there were a couple people I was unable to reach to let them know about the event I will allow the students that weren’t there to pick up their copy of the photo at the studio.  You must call prior to coming to pick it up.  574-867-6776

Indiana Photography: Carley and Dawson

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Carley came in for a photo session and brought her cousin (who happens to be 5 days older) in with her.   I overheard  Dawson whispering in Carleys ear, “Diaper backward spells repaid. Think about it.”  That silly baby.

The next two photos Bob took.  He once again was so much help to me and such a great help at the event.  If he isn’t busy shooting he jumps in and helps out with anything they need.  I love that about him.

Oh, I better mention this… The location for the wedding and reception is Brad’s family farm.  He grew up there.  How cool is that to get married where you grew up.

I am sure they are so glad they rented this bus.  It worked out perfect.  They hung out in there until the weather cleared so they could get under the tent.

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

One of the highlights of the evening was the toasts.  Mike- Brad’s father started the evening off with one of the most touching toasts ever.  One thing that followed thru the day was how blessed this couple was.  The weather seemed to clear when it needed to and Mike mentioned how Brad’s mom had always prayed that he would find the perfect bride.  How could it not be a perfect day with Brad’s mom praying since he was little for this day.

It rained outside of the tent, but it didn’t dampen the party because it was a full dance floor all night long!

Kyle Hinds was the DJ  (highly recommend him)  I love when he does the anniversary dance and then talks to the last couple standing on the floor at the end.  This couple was so cute.

As I mentioned Brad and Lindsay had a blessed day.  All weekend it rained and was hot, but right before the ceremony it cleared and we were able to get pictures and they were able to have their wedding and then it started to pour.  I felt terrible to everyone helping with the food and stuff.  They got SOAKED.

Here is the storm front moving in…

Indiana Wedding Photography: www.photographybyjayme.com

Huge thanks to everyone for such a wonderful day.  It was a hot one but really no one complained.  Everyone pitched in and helped out during the day.   I know I posted this on my facebook but have to share here… When Bob and I left we said by to Mike (Brad’s dad)  he said, “come back anytime”  I told Bob that he would just die if we showed up for dinner the next day.  LOL

Oh and have to mention that Lindsay’s dad was in awww of his daughter all day.  She is a beautiful girl but I think seeing her as a stunning bride was just awesome for him.  Bob is going to be just like that when Samantha gets married.

Everyone was just so nice and we could relate to them so well.  My family is so much like Brad’s.  We all live near each other.

Ceremony and Reception Location:  Neff Family Farm  Goshen, IN   Photographers:  Bob and Jayme Goetz DJ:  Kyle Hinds

Aaron is a super nice guy.   Even though he didn’t want senior pictures he was willing to get them taken for his mom.  At first his mom was going to leave because she was afraid he didn’t want her around, but I am so glad I talked her into staying.  I know how important this stuff is to the mom’s.  I am having a hard time with my kids growing up and they are only 7 and 4, I am pretty sure I will be a mess when it comes time for their senior pictures.

Aaron- have a wonderful summer and so glad you were my first senior of the season!  I had fun on our little adventure.

Northern Indiana Photography: Nappanee Missionary Church

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

I had the pleasure of teaching some photography to the video crew at the Nappanee Missionary Church.  My cousin Rodney is in charge of Media there.  I mostly worked on composition with them.  We had lots of fun with it.  At least I did, guess I shouldn’t speak for the rest of the group.

Here is Rodney getting ready to introduce me…

The church is HUGE.  We kinda invaded the choir’s practice session.  They were troopers though, they didn’t let us bother them.

I want to thank Abby and Josh (maid of honor and best man) for being so sweet and for helping with crowd control.  LOL  Thanks to Kasey’s dad for making Bob and I feel welcome at his home and to everyone for the fun times.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks to my husband for not only being a great help to me but was so helpful to the family.  He saved the day when one of the kids knocked over a glass, he was right there to get kids away from the glass and then cleaned up for them.  I love it when I hear people say how lucky I am to have such a great husband.  (thanks, I know!!)

Shout out to Robin who documented Kasey and Erics day thru his video camera.  He told me Kasey worked with him for a summer working on films and commercials.  I would highly recommend him.  He was lots of fun to work with.  Here is a quick shot I snapped of Robin, once he seen I was taking his picture, he thought he had to take mine…  (Robin- call me if you need a photographer, I would have no problem working with any of your famous clients, and I would have no problem flying to CA.  LOL)

Robin from Dreamscape Award Winning Movies

Before I end this post, have to mention that the 3 hour journey home was scary.  (Bob says I exaggerate but..) The weather was crazy.  For awhile it rained so hard he drove about 30 mph (If I was driving I would have pulled over)  Thanks facebook friends for keeping me updated on the weather during the ride home!!

I’ve been photographing these sisters for a few years now. Love when they come over.  We always have fun.  I had too much fun and was wore out after they left. I tried to make the session lots of fun so they are always excited to come back.  We even did some sidewalk chalk art for alittle while.

HERE is a link to last years shoot if u want to see more of these sisters.
