Culver Academy Senior- Carina


After the dust from a busy Graduation Weekend settled, Ginny and I had the opportunity to photograph Culver Girls Academies senior Carina before she went home to Florida. Carina is a beautiful subject. We wish her the best of luck in her future. We are certain it’s going to be filled with many achievements.

John & Cassie’s Family Shoot

 Late in the Fall, Cassie Schuldt contacted us about taking pictures of her, her sweet daughter, and her boyfriend John. We spent a couple of hours out at their property taking photos. It was one of the funnest shoots we’ve done. We had a great setting for pictures and some fun personalities, as you’ll see in the pictures. Following are a few from the batch.

Linley and Travis Engagment Shoot

A few weeks ago, Ginny and I shot the engagements photos for Linley and Travis, a couple getting married next year. Linley is Mallory Ulch’s sister. We shot Mallory and Troy’s wedding well over a year ago. We also had the honor of taking pictures of their new baby boy. We look forward to this next wedding.

Joe Krsek Senior Photo Session

Last weekend, I traveled out into the country to photograph Culver community High School student Joe Kresk at his home.  The weather wasn’t the best for the session but realizing that out days for scheduling Fall sessions is quickly coming to an end, we decided to go ahead with the session. Joe was a big help during the session in that he had several locations already picked out that he wanted photos by and then he humored me with my suggestions. I hope that the computer that you view these photos on will show this–Joe has some of the bluest eyes we’ve ever seen on a person. They are really cool. For any skeptics out there… if they do not show up on your computer, these are his natural eyes as shot. I did not color enhance them or anything.

Trent Becker Senior Photo Session

 One of Ginny’s favorite people in town is Chad Becker, a police officer who works for the town of Culver. A couple of weeks ago, I photographed Chad’s younger brother Trent for his senior photoshoot. Talk about a nice family. Trent was very laid back, friendly, and a lot like his brother. I enjoyed the shoot and hope Trent has a great senior year.

Engagement Portrait Session: Bethany and Tommy

 A few weeks ago, Ginny and I photographed Bethany and Tommy for an engagement session. They will  be getting married at Culver Academies next summer. Ginny and I will be photographing the wedding. We are looking forward to it, as these two people are great to work with and so easy going. We took some photos down by the park where they were engaged, and we also went over to campus to get some Chapel shots. We are looking forward to wedding day of these two!

Indiana Senior Pictures: Colleen

A couple of weeks ago, Ginny and I met up with Colleen, a senior who wanted to have her senior photos taken here in Culver. Colleen was a lot of fun to work with because, as she says, “She likes what is unconventional.” Colleen had some fresh ideas for taking her senior shots, so we let her lead the way. Along the way, we discovered that she’s a brilliant young woman with a bright future. Ginny wanted to try some new shots, too, as she had some black and whites in mind once she heard Colleen liked that style. So, we played around with some new sun shots (believe it or not, it was actually out for awhile here in Culver). Overall, we had a lot fun with Colleen’s outfits, ideas, and her mom who accompanied us. We are looking forward to hearing about how she does in college and beyond. Good luck, Colleen!


Indiana Senior Photos: Kyle Vandeputte

A couple of days ago, I shot Senior photos for local CCHS student Kyle Van Deputte. Kyle is heavily involved in school activities and sports and looks forward to the next phase of his adult life. As the son of Culver’s local Assistent Fire Chief, there are some strong expectations for Kyle. I think he will have no problem meeting them.

An hour before the shoot, I considered calling off the session because it was cloudy and overcast and didn’t look like we’d have very good weather for the shoot. The old joke that if you don’t like the weather in Indiana, wait an hour, couldn’t have been more true. Sixty minutes later, the morning haze and cloud cover had blown off and made for a nice a day. I tried some new lighting techniques on the golf course and was thrilled to get some cool shots of Kyle putting and swinging. I wish him all the luck for a great end to his senior year. I look forward to following his progress after Culver, as he’s a great young man and has great role models for parents.

Culver Academy Garrison Parade: Parent’s Weekend 2011

Parents’ weekend on Sunday was a great day for Culver Academy’s Garrison Parade. The weather was nice. The boys and girls looked sharp. The band sounded good. The trucks all ran and were clean. And the horses, for the most part, behaved themselves. The parade was everything that you’d expect 8 months into the school year.

I’ve posted some photos here. Other photos are located at:


Culver Academy Senior Photos: Tom O’Neil

 A couple of weeks ago, Ginny and I shot senior pictures of Tom O’Neil. His mom joined us on the shoot. Tom is a laid back guy with a great smile. We had a windy day because of earlier rain, but Tom had patience with getting some shots. I think his mom also promised a nice meal afterward. We had a great time shooting him and wish him all the best when he heads off to Chicago for college.
