Though I could go a the rest of my life without actually seeing Jeff perform the most dangerous part of his career duties, I have photos like this to remind me that he is indeed a hero and absolutely deserves his feet rubbed now and then. (I should point out that he would argue that THIS was not the only dangerous part of that fire, negotiating the ladder under those wires and to the roof was pretty risky.)
Here’s another one of Jeff during an extrication drill.
Who takes these photos? The same amazing woman that took my most favorite Jeff & Cathe picture of all time, Nina Zhito.
Nina, a press, event and portrait photographer, sees my husband through different eyes than I. She witnesses, as do the emergency personnel, some of the most breathtaking moments, and captures them in time for the rest of us to experience.
Through many fire department events over the years, I have come to know Nina and have grown quite fond of her. To learn more about this terrific woman and her work, please click HERE to visit my design blog, Farm Fresh Creative.
