I LOVE, LOVE this picture. He was standing in the water with his suit on, how cool is that!
It was getting really dark out, but we just kept shooting.
Mark is Culver all the way. He is in everything!!
Super duper fun evening with Mark, his mom and his brother. So glad they will be back in a few years for his brother’s senior pictures. Mark you will have to come with when I take those.
Enjoy your senior year Mark!!!
Mark’s mom was a great help, she had clothes ready to go so he grabbed and changed really quick. It was great team work! I even had his brother stand in a couple times so I could test lighting so when Mark was ready we just threw him in and snapped away.
The sky was constantly changing all evening. It was like a show was being put on for our photo shoot. These next two pictures were taken within about 15 mins of each other.
Liz is the 2010 Mint Festival Queen.
Liz works at a vet clinic and loves animals and they love her too…
During the session Liz asked me, “Is every session this much fun?” I had a hard time answering that because I am thinking what to say because I wouldn’t consider what we had gone thru “fun”. Let me try to quickly fill you in on my evening with Liz.
- The horses broke the fence that day and they were in the pen we would be shooting in, so we had to move them to the other pen. (not easy, but we got it)
-While getting Liz’s horse saddled her best friend Sam got stepped on by the horse. (she was wearing flip flops) So I played nurse for a few seconds and then both Sam and I had to get back to helping Liz.
- While shooting Liz and her one horse another horse knocked the broken fence over and came in the pen with us and thought it would be fun to pick on the photographer. LOL
-In between takes I put my light stand in the barn and tried to put it out of the way. I knocked down a feed sack and I had a pile of dirt dumped on me. I just stood there for a second and said a bad word (not like me) and then dusted myself off and helped Liz.
-We couldn’t get Liz’s chaps to zip up. If you are someone that has worn chaps before you understand. It isn’t easy every, but when everyone is sweating and miserable it is rough. Sam and I got them zipped up though, we were a great team!
- The dogs, well they acted like dogs. LOL
-We all were sweating big time it was so humid out. I actually had Liz run back home before we headed to train museum to freshen up because the poor girl was a mess after dealing with horses and dogs.
That is most of it in a nutshell. Did Liz have fun? She said she did and that is all that matters. Her mom I know didn’t have fun dealing with the dogs, but I think she enjoyed watching her daughter have fun, Sam got stepped on so I am thinking even if she had fun that kinda ruined her evening, and you know what, despite all the craziness I had fun too, and we got awesome pictures!!!
Since Sam got stepped and still sucked it up and helped her best friend out she get the Photography by Jayme Best Helper Award. Thanks Sam for your help, I know Liz appreciated it and so did I.
I ended up with 3 mosquito bites trying to get this picture….
Still can’t believe we managed to get this photo. Luckily Megan has nice horses, most people couldn’t do something like this.
It got alittle bit too dark on us, we kinda goofed off alittle too much. I still have one shot I need to get but I will get that next week when Megan comes to Courtney’s senior session. Speaking of Courtney….
Ever heard the song ”Too Much Fun” by Daryle Singletary. Yeah well Courtney had too much fun the other night. She got dressed up in some of my kid props.
She tried to leave the studio with my stuff but I wouldn’t let her. She was a good reflector holder.
Thanks girls (well and Jim too) for the fun evening. I can’t wait until Courtney’s so we can have round 2 of “too much fun!”
Had a blast hanging out with Elisabeth and her mom. Here are a few of her senior pictures….
these last 3 are my faves…
It was got dark fast Wednesday night, so at the end of the session I had to find some light from other sources.
Proud of this next shot, it was so dark my camera could barely focus, I am so bummed that I had taken my little flash light out of my bag when we had no power.
I also have some sports shots we took in the studio. I am gonna make a cool collage but don’t have the time today. I will get that done and posted early next week.
Thanks Elisabeth for doing so well, and to Judy for always having the comb ready!! :)
Congrats to all 57 Starke County Indiana Super Seniors Class of 2011
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.
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
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.
After I was done with the class Rod showed me where he does his video magic.
And here is the just a small portion of the outside of the church…
Thanks Rodney for asking me to speak to your group. Everyone was super and made me feel welcome. I hope they all walked away with something.
The Valedictorians and Salutatorians…
My favorite parts were when the graduates gave flowers to their moms…
And when they walked down the aisle with big smiles on their faces…
Thanks for the fun times Class of 2010. So sad that you have graduated but exited for you guys. See ya tomorrow at the parties.
The kid’s book that I did for Maggie and Jared featuring local kids is available for viewing online.

I am offering a new service. Removal of Brace. So if you have braces and they aren’t going to be off any time soon, don’t worry I can remove them digitally. Here is an example of one of Julia’s photos that we retouched.
After braces were removed…
Here is a close up
