Shooting at the zoo… wow, that's a misleading title, huh?

October 20, 2009

I did a pho-to shoot at the Detroit Zoo.  I did not shoot someone while at the zoo.  No one was shot at the zoo.  I was not shot at the zoo.  Did I clarify all possible misconceptions created by poor title syntax skills?

My friends from church, Alex and Staci, have two gorgeous little boys.  They fit right in with my philosophy of only taking pho-tos of beautiful people. 

These boys are tough.  Let me rephrase… this family is tough.  Both boys were born with hemophilia, a disease that keeps their blood from clotting regularly.  The family has approached this challenge with aplomb, to say the least.  They raise tons of money for hemophila research, and the boys are so normal that the cute little styrofoam helmet (they wear it until the age of 4 to protect their head injuries that could cause internal bleeding) is the only red flag to passers-by. 

And they are full of love.  Alex and Staci are high school sweethearts, and their love is characterized most by the care they show for one another.  They are calm and loving and gentle… never speaking harsh words and always loving on their boys.  It sort of oozes.  And it’s contagious.  Beware… you are about to catch something pretty epic…
