This picture was totally staged for those of you holding back the urge to go into traumatic shock and call child protective services.
I was taking my brother's senior portraits and a bunch of his friends came along for the ride. This is just one of the many hilarious beach outtakes I captured. Makes me laugh every time!
(In case you were wondering, my brother is the one doing the choking. His best friend is the one with the crazy look on his face.)
