{J} in A to Z

J is for just not satisfied with this portrait. I mentioned I had saved J, L and A for the kids' portraits and already burned A yesterday. Jack is one reluctant poser. add to that my broken Rebel and you get a crummy iPhone photo. I love the subjects in the portrait, just not the end result. I over-processed it in snapseed and then ran it thru instagram for good measure. J - is for Jack, just sittin' with his dog, and his mullet*

*PS - the mullet is NOT coming back. Jack and his team qualified for the state playoffs a couple weeks ago and as a show of solidarity the whole team took to the salon/barber for this coiffe, complete with 3 racing stripes. as reckless as it may seem, there's actually a method to their madness. this is the 30th consecutive year in westwood high school hockey history that the boys varsity team has qualified for the state playoffs. the first team was in 1983 and his father, my husband, was on that team. I guess they thought an 80's mullet was a fitting tribute. the first boys playoff game is tomorrow night - stay tuned...
