Just a quick sneak peak from a recent family session at a FIREHOUSE!!
Totally cool it was.
But the best part was that I knew "Firefighter Joe" way back when he wanted to grow up and be a firefighter. "Grow Up" as in let's-stop-hanging-out-at-the-bars-and-flinging-drinks-I-should-probably-get-a-real-job-growing-up. :) I watched his worry and hope in some crazy lottery system, the agony of almost missing the birth of his daughter while in the academy, missing my wedding because he was low man on the totem pole ladder to finally...seeing him through the eyes of his children...
As a real. live. fireman.
ok.ok. I know that fireFIGHTER is politically correct but fireman just sounded better. Bear with me.
With enough rank that we could just get the ole' firetruck out and let his kids relish in the fact that their dad has just about the coolest job EVER!
Although I must admit I kinda miss him slingin drinks at cool places. :)
Love this next one. Little Miss is sweet as can be lovin her brother and little bro is trying to squeeze the beejeezus out of his big sister.
I like to think that I am hilarious. Truth be told...Little Miss is an aspiring actress. ;)
So while the session was more for the kids...
For me...it was more about this:
Fireman. Paramedic. Proud Papa. Coffee Connoisseur.
My friend Joe.
I've loved watching you grow up. You've done it so well.
