Have you ever been somewhere and saw a group of people standing in line and you wondered what they were waiting for? You ponder whether you want to join them - you think on it for a moment, then decided that you don't want to wait. This happened to my friends Shelly & Eddie's son, Kory, but it turns out he did want to get in that line because it was for end-of-the season football portraits.
You can't really blame him. If he knew the line was for photos, he probably would have thought good and hard about not getting in the cue. Then he would have remembered his Mama and would have cut right to the front. Teenage boys.
If you are a mom or dad, then you know how important these moments in your child's life are. They grow up so fast and us parents are desperately trying to hang on to each fleeting moment as it passes by us at warp speed. If you are not a parents, just think back to when you were a kid. It seems like just yesterday, yet here you are.... am I right?
I got a call from Shelly. She was in a pinch - Kory missed his end-of-the-season football portraits and she only had a couple days before he was required to turn in his uniform. Luckily, the stars aligned - I had a small block of time between shoots and we were just happening to have the best November weather that I can remember. It was 65 degrees in Michigan, in November, with sunny, blue skies.
Kory is a great kid and he was a good sport about his "make-up portraits". We even got some genuine smiles out of him. Shelly and Eddie have been so supportive of my business, I was glad a could help out.
