My skydive trip today!

I have wanted to go skydiving for as long as I can remember. So, when my friend Christy asked me to go… now was the time!
 
We went to Skydive Greensburg, and let me tell ya… those guys are fantastic! Everyone was so funny and really made it a great experience.
 
If you ever thought about jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, go to Skydive Greensburg. And buy the DVD and pictures too. It is a great time that you will remember forever!
 
My friend Casey took these shots on the ground.  Another skydiver took the two in the air.
 
Here I am before the jump

Senior pictures on the lake…

…Lake Michigan, that is!
 
We finally were able to do our “group shoot” at Lake Michigan last Saturday, June 13th. We had a great turnout with 13 class of 2010 seniors joining us. The skies didn’t exactly cooperate… as the storms cleared out, the clouds were supposed to follow! They did not. They stuck around.
 
Still… from the feedback I have received so far, I’d say it was a huge success! The kids all had fun & everyone has some killer shots to choose from. I will post more as they come back for their regular sessions & pick their favorites.
 
For now, I’ll just show you one of Karly so you can get an idea of how it went. Rock on class of 2010!

My trip to Senior Portrait Artists “family circle”

I just got back from the Senior Portrait Artists (SPA) “Family Circle” in Louisburg Kansas. It is a 2 day event with some of the best senior portrait photographers in the country. What I love about SPA is how everyone makes you feel so welcome, and the open sharing of information about the business, and the art of photography.
 
I am soon going to be offering some great new products that I saw at SPA headquarters. I am very excited!
 
In the spirit of the open sharing, and teaching, I spoke to the group about some of the things I have planned this year, including a big event I am doing in December. Pretty cool stuff I will be announcing later. 🙂
 
I also have a pretty amazing announcement coming in just days… Stay tuned, it is going to be awesome!
 
I took very few pictures while I was there… it was more about teaching and learning. Here are a couple snapshots from the trip.
