okay, i'll tell you now...

Now that the cat's out of the bag, I can share it with the rest of you.

Courtesy of Hoffer Photography (their link is over on the right down there) I won my parents a free 2 hour photo shoot along with $25 towards prints they like. The contest started a few months back and I toyed with entering, but figured there was no chance I could win, so I put off putting an entry together. Then one week before it was to end, I had a few spare hours one evening and decided, "what the heck, it's worth a try!" With the help of some scanned in pictures and iMovie I put together a little video pleading my case. And it worked!

Tony is an old high school friend of mine (in fact, I believe we even went to nursery school together) and he's been doing some amazing photography work, so I'm very excited to have the Hoffers capture some great shots of my parents.

You can see the entry here on Hoffer's blog. Go check it out! And while you're at it browse through some of their recent shoots...great stuff!

HA gainer = cute / funny.

maybe they should bring a big elastic cat's cradle string to the shoot? just a suggestion.

then again, those sort of antics should never be recorded in a form that could be revisited in the future. i think the TWANGER is best reserved for in-person humiliation only.

contests rule.

yes, I think documenting the twanger would take away it's appeal.

You created such a sweet tribute to them. It's a treasure in it's own right!
