Gun Lake Fun

My Grandson David

My Oldest son Matthew with a wicked volley ball slam!

Here we are trying to out run a storm in a pontoon boat! We didn't make it!

Every summer our family rents a cottage on Gun Lake, which is located not to far from Hastings Michigan. I think we have been doing this for about 14 or 15 years now. We all love it. It is a good place to unwind and forget about the cares of life, at lease for a week. I always bring one of my cameras to photograph all the fun we are having. Over the last few years I have been able to have my laptop with me. I take photos of all our friends and family up their and at the end of the week burn each family to take home with them. I love taking the photos, they love seeing them a great combination. Here are just a few of the hundreds I took. Enjoy!

Jacob - Street Shots

I love taking photos on the street. I grabbed Jacob and went to East Lansing and did some shooting. We went out just before dusk, when the lighting is the best! Shooting on a busy street can be distracting with a lot of people walking buy, this session was no different. We attracted a group of girls who seem to fall in love with Jacob, yelling "we love you!" After watching our session from a far, they went up to the top of the parking garage and continued watching. Jacob took it in stride, (actually I think he rather liked the attention!) We got some great photos and had a good time!

Joel & Joanna - Engagement

This has been an on going project since last winter. I love it when we have a little time to work. You couldn't have asked for a better day for the 1st session we did last winter. Sunny day, blue sky and fresh fallen snow. The shoot was a lot of fun. Joel and Joanna were great to work with. We were able to get three session in. The first session was at a little park that I had never been to that the Joel and Joanna recommended, the 2nd location was in the gardens out at Michigan State and the 3rd and last location was downtown in Lansing, around the Lansing Center. Looking forward to their wedding coming up. It is an out side wedding, Love outdoor weddings, heck, I love inside weddings :-) !
