Last week we were asked to photograph the Reinfeldt family for Southern Land Company’s “Horizons” Magazine.  Mike Reinfeldt is the new general manager of the TN Titans football team and he and his family are new residents of one of Southern Land’s most elite developments.  I was joking with Mike’s wife Susan about how I’m going to send our kids to boarding school when they become teenagers because they lose their minds!  I have to say though, they have the two best 12 and 13 year olds I’ve ever seen!  They were so awesome with their parents and had just the coolest attitudes!  I think my new plan is to send our kids to Susan! :) 

 These kinds of shoots are a little out of the norm for us.  We’re shooting with someone else’s vision in mind and since the subjects of the articles are giving their time to the magazine, we feel like we need to get in and out quick!  Commercial is just a whole different ball game!  Still it was fun and they are such a great family!  Thanks for inviting us into your home!

    Thanks David! Don’t they look like great teenagers? I’m thinking your girls are pretty cool too though – do you want to raise my kids? ;)

    Mel, What is WRONG with your kids that I don’t know about?

    haha! a lot of people ask me that. but not after the fire post. we had a fire in my house yesterday and the oldest one just ran around like a chicken with its head cut off, the youngest one ran next door and told them to call 911. it was a crazy day.

    Ha! That is yet to be seen – I’m just covering all my bases! ;)
