Earlier this year when our son Charlie was two months old our family took a vacation to Maui and we invited our friends Shaun and Stephanie Scade to come with us and do a photo session for us and to celebrate a big change in our lives. While all of us were waiting for a connecting flight Shaun and Steph broke the news that they were also expecting a child of their own in 8 months! Hugs and handshakes all around, we had another reason to celebrate!
The trip turned into nothing but unending laughs involving Krispy Kreme drive-thru shenanigans, Shauns questionable alcoholic beverage concoctions, and my lack of parenting skills being a new dad. I am sure Stephanie and my wife Lindsey became increasingly worried about raising a child with Shaun and I around.
Lindsey and I are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with the Scades on this trip. Many people reading this will know how much this is true - being in their presence. Many will also know how lucky they are to have photos adorning their walls and photo albums created by the Scade.
I was to photograph baby Neko as part of a mentorship session for another photographer, but I decided i'd be to nervous and unfocused to photograph such an important addition to this world, so I showed up solo. Neko was a dream to photograph, and she was clearly destined to be in the Scade family.
I look forward to seeing the Scades' passion for all things music and all things photography shape the life of Neko. I look forward to our children growing up together.
