Scott and Ky

Scott is an extremely talented photographer and an amazing vet tech at Werntz Memorial Animal Hospital in Pittsburgh (my pets ADORE him). Scott loves bonding with his son, Ky, by taking him to Pirates' games. Towards the end of one game his son decides he would rather see the boats on the river outside of the stadium than see the end of the game. Bonding with his son is the most important aspect of their outing...so off they go. While looking at the boats, over the fence comes a ball. Boom. That is the ball featured in this portrait along with the joy of his son....and his great Dad.
