My friend, Bates Mattison, has decided to run for city council in Brookhaven. He's a great guy...with a great family...and I know he'd do a great job.
So when he called me the other day to ask if I'd take some pictures to be used throughout his campaign, I was obviously quite flattered.
We met at his house and took a few head shots, and then we ventured over to Lenox Park to get a few of him with the rest of his family.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: capturing moments like this is what it's all about for me.
Not only do I hope that the day's photos help the city of Brookhaven see what a great guy Bates really is, but I also hope he and Stephanie can look at them and be so very proud of what a beautiful and special family they have.
