Chase

Chase works at my favorite Starbucks in Naples.  On Halloween he was there to show
his girls to his co-workers.  While there, he paid the bill for everyone standing
 in line, including me.  I told him I would accept only if
 I could take a photo of the girls and him.


Chase's generosity prompted me to give $20 to the barista to cover the guests when
Chase's money ran out.  Plus a $5 tip for the barista.
Pay it forward.

Great minds and all that. I also shot a portrait outside my favorite cafe yesterday! Chase is a generous guy.

Beautiful children with a proud and loving father. So glad that you, too stepped up. I wonder how on earth Chase makes it in this economy?!

Michelle said...

I have to agree with Kate's comment. Wondering how Chase makes it trying to raise these beautiful girls. Kudos to you for stepping up and paying it forward.

I join the chorus: how does he do it in today's economy? I'm guessing that the Naples cost of living isn't any easier than elsewhere.
...And now you're "paying" models?! You're setting a new standard...

Chase has a beautiful hard working wife so I'm going with that's how he makes it!!! Miss y'all, I'm sure your gonna hate missing out on another fabulous winter up here! ;)
