I was recently contacted by Clyde and Brad… minions. They are, however, the two cutest, sweetest minons I have ever met. They were interested in a lifestyle portrait session to celebrate a special event. Their favorite sports team, the Squaws, made the play-offs and had won the first round. Clyde and Brad wanted to document their love for the beloved Squaws and share it with the team… and the world.
You see, they have been through a lot this year. At first, Clyde (pictured on the right) was the only minion mascot for the team. Then, he was involved in a terrible bathing accident (in a washing machine) and lost both of his eyes and his mouth. He never lost his spirit, but he did need a close friend and helper. He was introduced to Brad, who quickly became his new best bud. Clyde and Brad go everywhere together and have continued to root for their favorite team. The Squaws have developed a strong superstition that if Clyde and Brad are not at their games, they will not have good luck. Clyde and Brad travel “first class” in #9’s bat bag to ensure they make it to all the games.
They love spending time at the Squaws’ playing field, so that is where we started the photo shoot.
Clyde and Brad have been to so many softball games, they have recently taken up the sport themselves. They enjoy playing against each other and put together a quick pick-up game whenever they can. They only wish they knew more softball-playing minions so they could establish a minion softball league.
After we finished up at the field, they wanted to venture around town a bit. The only time they have ever been outside of their home/traveling vessel, is at the field. They wanted to see where the mighty Squaws are from. They received a personalized tour of the town.
Along the way, the also met up with some dear friends of the Squaws’.
All-in-all, they had a great day and will NEVER EVER stop supporting the Squaws. Go Squaws Go!!
