When people ask me what I do for a living, I've pretty much exclusively responded with "I work at Spectrum Health, on the internal web site." To which most people respond with "Oh, cool!"
Recently, my friend Lindsey (with an E, not an A) asked me if I'd take her little brother's senior pictures (Using the term 'little' very loosely -- Travis is like a foot taller than me). At first, I declined -- I hadn't taken portraits in over a year, and I've never taken pictures of a guy. But after realizing those were really dumb reasons, I took the gig, and couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out!
