Wade and I have been friends for gosh, about 15 years. We used to work together, so when he called and asked me to do his professional head-shots and his family photos I was honored. Admittedly, we have lost touch over the last few years with us both being so busy with family and life. Interestingly, we both have sons that will go to school in the same town and live in the same school district, and will be in the same grade! I hope they will be in the same class someday. Perhaps that will force us to keep in touch.
His family is ridiculously cute. Let me follow that up with a quick story. One day after work (a typical long sweaty day), I ran into Wade, his wife Cyndi and their son Liam at the grocery store. Don’t tell them I said this, but I have I never felt so frumpy before. I would have run, or hid by the cheese, but he saw me before I saw him. His wife is one of those women that you just can’t believe can look like that without a stitch of makeup on. I obviously love photographing those people, they make my job look like walking on air. Anyway, here are some of their family session this past weekend.
A little about Wade and Cyndi, they are not only a handsome family, but super smart and successful to boot. Wade works as a Business Support Manager for the Americas, global touch-screen company. Cyndi is an Electrical Engineer at ORNL. They have two sons Alexander who is 18, and Liam who is 4. They enjoy reading, being outdoors, and spending time with their family. Alex is a unique young man. Not only is he gorgeous but he is special needs and has the best sense of humor. Thank goodness, since I called him AJ the entire shoot. (Sorry Alex!) I will make it up to you. Check your mailbox on Thursday. I got you and Liam a little something for being such superstars! What touched me so much about these photos is the love that is present. When I met Alex more than ten years ago I thought the same thing. They radiate with genuine affection and have such a good time together. That my friends, is what life is all about.
