I have known Doug for nearly twenty years. He was a contractor doing an evaluation of a program I was managing at the time. Over the years, I have had him take pictures of my family and me, especially of those memorable events including our wedding in 2005 and my son's graduation party in 2010. Doug is fun to work with and is really good with people.
In recent years, we started talking about photography, as I only rediscovered my passion a few years ago. We decided we should get together and exchange notes on some of the things we do when we photograph people. We literally talked for a couple of hours. We did get our gear and headed outside to take shots of each other. It was a bit cool, but sunny. The blue sky looked really nice with Doug's shirt. And I was really happy with the pics he took of me since I am usually behind and not in front of the lens. :)
