The Problem With Having Cool Friends…

The problem with have cool friends is they attract other cool people. No, not us…I mean the other bunches of talented photographers they hang with. So…naturally…since I’ve only been in the game for a little over a year I had to wait on the bench. Until one day…it was the bottom of the ninth inning. Finally coach yells out my number and tells me to get a helmet on. As I wait in the on deck circle the moment is surreal. Heart racing, I barely get the chance to take in what’s before me. Batter up! However, instead of facing a major league closer, I’m relieved to look to the mound and see two attractive parents. I’m smiling inside because I know I can drive this pitch out the park. No prob. But… instead of a mid 70 fastball down the middle I get a curve ball. Two sick kids. Additionally, when you have cool friends, you can’t do the normal family shoot where everyone is smiling and walking hand in hand on the beach (which I vow never to do anyways). Nope. Can’t do it. Wont do it.

While I realize I don’t write this much and I’ve probably lost your attention I’m gonna continue anyways…this is Jordan and Katelyn and their two awesome kids. Jordan and I have been friends for somewhere around 14 years. We were in each others weddings…we’ve played in bands together…we’ve clean toilets together. Katelyn is the amazing interior designer behind Bessant Designs …Jordan, aside from being good at everything other than golf and attentive driving, is a web guru. Check him out too. Jordan’s Site. Their kids are near perfect. The only thing keeping them from perfection is the lack of a British accent. Jordan and Katelyn love good shows. They love Mad Men and wanted a sort of vintage family picture. Using their living room…we did this…
