It was pretty funny that when I pulled into the place that I was going to meet Tim and Nick, the first thing that I saw was a row of sailboats with the numbers 13, 14, 15 and 16 on them. Since they are the class of 2014, I thought it would be pretty cool to get a couple of shots with the boat. I didn't even realize how perfect it was until I showed them and their mom told me that they love to fish and that they actually have their own boat. Anyway I did manage to get some shots of them both together and individually with the numbered boats. Tim had his own preference for boat number but I will save that for his blog post.
After we shot some with the boat, we wandered over to the little building that is on the property. It has a really neat door on side and an detailed, intricate railing on the other. At this point, Nick said to me, "You know all the places here, huh?' Hey it's my job to know good shooting spots.
There was also a not so stable dock, and Nick thought it would be funny to rock it a little when I was on it. Since I didn't fall in with my brand new camera, I thought it was pretty funny too!!
Nick is quite an accomplished young man, besides being a boat owner, he is a captain of the football team and the wrestling team and will most likely be captain of the lacrosse team in the spring. And apparently he and Tim also coached youth lacrosse last spring. I say apparently because they didn't tell me, I found out when I posted the sneak peek on Facebook and someone commented that they had coached her kids and that they were great guys. .
Nick wants to be an electrician when he is finished with school, there is always a need for one of those so I tried really hard not to torture them too much so that I could stay on his good side. So after getting a few more shots, both separately and together, I let them go to carry on with their day.
It didn't take them long to shed their picture taking personas and become regular guys again. And I think that I may have been successful in my not torturing them bid because Nick did give me a thumbs up when they were leaving.
Thanks, Nick for being such a good sport.I wish you all the best in all of your endeavors this year. Please click here if you would like to see the rest of Nick's pictures.
