Lake Blue Cypress - Florida Vero Beach - Middletons Fish Camp - M. C. Kinney Photography

Almost one month ago I spent three great days enjoying the rustic and natural beauty of the tranquil Lake Blue Cypress in Florida. One of the amazing experiences we had, outside of photographing hundreds of osprey and their young and watching an alligator come up to our porch overhanging the water, was of seeing these three cottages on stilts. Currently unoccupied due to some government tomfoolery, I had the great fortune of meeting three sisters whose childhood was spent visiting with their grandfather that owned one of these great buildings. According to the sisters Erin, Ginger and Michelle, they spent their days swimming with the gators when taking their lake baths. Oh to be young and crazy again!!
Here's a quick image of the homes in their current state. Beautiful, mysterious, eerie and dilapidated. What fun must have been had in these back in the day...

Xavier Food Fair Silent Auction - Appleton Senior Photography - M. C. Kinney Photography

This year my auction item for the Xavier High School Food Fair Silent Auction held the first Sunday of May was a 3 outfit high school senior session and images. My understanding is there were quite a few bidders this year, with a junior male receiving this session, which he's scheduled during the summer. I was absent for this food fair, only the second one I've missed since 1979, but I heard it was another great one!

This is the framed gallery wrap that was on display of my niece Amanda, a Xavier student that was recently on their Prom Court (shameless plug from the proud aunt!!) Currently this image can be viewed in the downtown studio window.
Call the studio to schedule your senior session for the best appointment times. I know it seems early for juniors to be booking already, but yearbook images are due in the fall and the process takes several months to complete. And before you know it, it will be Labor Day and time will be running short!
