Another photo-shoot with Kevin

_DSC5377From time to time we like to get together with Kevin, our good friend and fellow photographer, and enjoy a solid photo shoot in his studio. Until Kevin’s health put a stop to it, it was quite common for us to start a serious shoot early evening that went on till almost daybreak next morning!
