I had a small window this afternoon for a mini photo shoot for three of our favorite people in Orlando. Nate is a bodybuilder with a lumberjack beard, who looks like he could go a few rounds Paul Bunyan. Meredith is one of my wife's best friends and is really the reason Janie has become a runner. Their beautiful, little Lija has become Chase and Jackon's surrogate baby sister. She calls them her "bubbies." Awesome.
They wanted a few photos to go on their Christmas card, so we took a few shots by our Christmas tree and a few more by the pond behind my house.
This was such a fun photo shoot for me because it became a family affair. Janie was great at helping setup different shots and kept us moving quickly and Chase was a fantastic photographer's assistant. He grabbed his Vtech Kidizoom Digital Camera he got for Christmas last year and took shots right along with me.
Even Jackson got in the act. You can't see him in this final photo below but you can see the result of him. He is standing on the couch next to where I was and doing what he does best...making people laugh. At least it worked on Lija.
