fyi .. this is Beau ... i found him online to fix my gutters and roof that were damaged from a massive hail storm .. the tiles looked like they had been in a war .. with holes as large as your fist .. the gutter guards were totally destroyed ..
anyway .. during our phone conversation he happened to mention that he had twin four year old boys .. my immediate reaction was to say .. i'd love to photograph them .. !! .. ;)
end result was that he came out with his wife Sarah, the two boys and their staffie puppy to do the work ..
me and Sarah were sitting on the water tank talking .. i was in my happy place .. having a chat and taking occasional candid photos of her, the boys and the puppy with katee ..
Beau came over to tell me what was going on with the work .. he told me to stop taking photos .. lol .. i had the camera to my face and turned around and shot him .. which is the photo i entered .. and that smile was totally him .. a really lovely man .. and his teeth were that white .. !! .. ;)
i put up an album in facebook for them .. they're going to print off a few .. and he wants to use this photo as the profile pic for his business .. obviously i didnt charge them .. it was too much fun ..
everyone was a winner ..
