Asher Douglas || Day 10
Many of you know I share a studio space with the talented Kim Thiel Photography. It’s not unusual for us to take an afternoon stroll down to Seth’s Coffee for a midday break. A few weeks back we stepped out and ran into Brad who I was introduced to for the first time. Conversation quickly turned to the topic Brad’s new babe with his wife Vanessa and the rest was history as they say.
Asher Douglas visited the studio not long after that and I can’t express how happy I am to have met the whole family! There was a calm joy about these three as we worked through the morning, such contentment with their new lives. I always love it when parents pass their babe over and say ‘whatever you think!’ as I work through poses and prop setups. It’s like that extra high five you get to reassure you you’re doing a great job and they trust your judgement.
Brad and Vanessa are small business owners as well and work downtown Appleton. I’m surprised we hadn’t met prior to our encounter on the street. At our ordering session I think we spent a good 20 minutes chatting business and exchanging a few audiobooks to look into. In reality Brad was the one suggesting them, I was just soaking it all up. Meeting like-minded individuals who value strong work ethics and strive to better the communities we all live in is a treat.
Congrats on your new babe you two, he fits right into your beautiful world!
