Overnight Location Session for Heath Senior Models

Eight area high school seniors recently got up-close and personal with Singer Castle – the kind of up-close that comes from an overnight stay.

On May 11th, the students, who are members of the student ambassador program for Heath Photography, left via boat from Bonnie Castle Marina.

Accompanied by two Heath staff members and an ambassador from the previous year, the students participated in a photo session, a lecture about being open to and connecting with spirits, a scavenger hunt and other shenanigans, and a tour with accompanying ghost stories fit for a castle stay.

The photo session focused on prom attire and took place mostly outside, with the castle serving as a stunning backdrop. The students each chose a spot inside the castle for a few more individual shots.

Photographer Penny Kring conducted the shoot, with help from studio manager Brittany Hill and Kiana Conger, one of last year’s ambassadors.

The girls spent the night in the castle’s maid’s quarters, the boys were downstairs in a different room, and the staff stayed in the suites. But not much sleep was had, as the students were having such a blast roaming the castle and making new friends that they were awake until the wee hours of the morning.

The event was coordinated with the help of castle president Tom Weldon and caretaker Scott Garris, who led off the ghost story telling and castle tour.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Heath Photography staff and their student ambassadors have stayed overnight for a photo shoot at the castle.

This year’s students that participated in the photo shoot were (L>R) Cullen Willmert (Carthage), Isabella Rondon (Immaculate Heart), Brandy Milsap (Hammond), Bryanna Bowman (Gouverneur), Keelee Dingman (Beaver River), Katie Berry (Indian River), Maia Tsuji (Indian River), and Zach Vesel (Lisbon)
