The Best Photo I Ever Took

Being behind the camera is exciting. The tension is palpable. And sometimes, you just know when you got a good shot! But I always do my best to seem calm, cool and collected for my clients. Obviously.
Sometimes, it's not so easy.

Recently I was at Hayden Farms in Lowell, Ind. to picture a few calves.

I even got to snap this picture at Maine & Chi Jr. Nationals of the Hayden crew.

The Haydens are this great, big, loving family. They travel in groups wherever they go, and I typically see them at cattle shows. [A great place to meet up with friends!] But, because we live so close, I run into them elsewhere as well.

Mike & Doug Hayden sold Joe and me no less than 5 calves throughout our 4-H careers. They taught us a lot about feeding and fitting and clipping. We might not have said it then, but I'll say it now - THANK YOU!

I've always looked up to them and admired them, because their cattle always look good and always do well. Oh, and they're nice people.

Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I snapped this picture at their place -


Then, before we could even get him posted on their website, somebody bought him. [Good for them! But minimizes my excitement level as no one got to see this picture...]

I'm headed back to Hayden's in the near future, and I can't wait to share more pictures and videos from their place either here or on the Focus blog.
