    I couple months ago my son Memphis caught an infection due to an irregularity in his bladder which led him to a stay in the Pediatric ICU. Scariest time in my life for sure but the well wishes and prayers that many of you had sent me really lifted my spirits and helped me get through it. I'm pleased to say that he's doing great and is healthy and happy. He's going to need another surgery but that's down the road and should not be at all as serious as what he went through this far.

    So we really like pictures and wanted to capture Memphis' life, and since he's only young once and is willing to do these pictures I wanted to do them with the stuff I'm into. I figure it'll also help form getting the thread shit down since it's sort of on topic haha!!!

    I never thought I'd be the type to start a thread like this until I became a father and the pride that I have for this boy is practically exploding out of me. So here's my son Memphis James.

    Props I used were

    ---an old polished Edelbrock 6x2 Hemi intake
    ---Offy Chevy to early ford trans adapter
    ---'56 Corvette Steering wheel
    ---My '35 Ford Coupe
    ---My '33 Ford Coupe
    ---Our Garage
    ---And my most prized and wife Davina.


    Thanks for looking!

    Good to see everything is going better! Did you take the pictures before you ran into the snake on the work bench or after? If after the south must be rubbing off on you. Great pics. John

    Thanks guys!!! I still can't believe I had a hand in making this little guy. We have it set up so that we had the Maternity pics, 3weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and a year so far so I'll definitely keep updating this thread. Then couple that with all the ones that we ourselves will be taking and we should have pretty much his first year documented.

    He should be at Good-Guys Southeast nationals so I'll have pics there too!

    Here's a pic with a shirt ScooterMcRad and his girl Holly sent us. Hot Rod Camp!!!

  12. Don't blink, JJ! I did and now my oldest is in her first year of college and my youngest has her learner's permit!

    Spend all the time you can with him and Davina! He'll be asking for the keys tomorrow!

    I think the barefoot Mama pics in the garage are my favorite. Kind of sentimental and sexy at the same time. Really good stuff.
    My wife wouldn't dare step into my shop barefoot. :p

    Definitely a few in there that are worthy for the HAMB calendar!
    Remember, the years fly by..........reminds me of my daughters' pictures I took when they were delivered via C-section. Even though they are grown women now, they still cherish those pictures. Your son will cherish your pictures too.
  28. Awesome shots! Congrats on a beautiful family!
