He's Grown a Foot or Two

In our church, there's a song the children sing about going on a mission when they've grown a foot or two. Well, Nate has reached that point. We did some missionary portraits last night. He was a nice boy to humor his mother. We did outdoor shots. We did indoor shots. He was patient thorugh the whole thing, even when I set the strobes up in the garage, where it was very hot!!! (It was 98 degrees here yesterday).
Here is a sampling of my handsome missionary.
