BMWNROR v.11 :: The Mike Edition (Off Road Style)!

Alrighty there now, my good friends of blog.  I come to you at this fine hour of the night with a story about someone that we have had the good golly good pleasure of working with for just about as long as we can remember.  His name is…Mike.  Michael.  Whichever.  Perhaps he has a nickname.  The Master of Disaster.  The King of Pain.  The Sultan of Swing.  The Voodoo Economic.  It doesn’t matter.

What does matter is that a long time ago, when Mike was shorter, and perhaps younger, the very first time we met him was for some sweetly holiday pics at his family house.  This was way back when we were nobody’s.  The term ‘o&j’ only stood for people with the last name ‘Simpson’ or ‘Orange Juice’.  For some reason, we got the call, took the pics, and have continued to have the good pleasure of working not just with Mike, but with his whole family as well!

But, my dear friends, I’m not here to tell you about the entire family, I am only going to talk about Mike.  And what I’m going to tell you is that he was great to work with, and that’s an understatement.  Maybe it’s because we’ve been doing this for a few years now, but whatever it was, he tore it up.  In addition to looking good in front of the camera, he also handled it in stride when – due to the incompetence of Otis – we went for an unplanned off-roading adventure in a Nissan Maxima, which is normally not considered an off-road vehicle.

He totally took it in stride as we (mostly he and a kind jogger that happened by did all the work – and the kind jogger turned out to be one of our very first Seniors…small world…named Andrew ((MuchLove to Him!))) got us unstuck from the muddy goo, and as one of our camera’s fell apart during the shoot.  The Gods of all things technical were not on our side, but the Gods of looking dead good in your senior snaps were.

And that’s all that matters.

MuchLove & ManyThanks to Mike for being so great to work with, and to all my other peeps out there in Land of Blog – Enjoy!
