I had the extreme pleasure of having an old friend reach out to me to ask me to photograph his younger son for his high school yearbook. In doing that, I learned more about this old friend than I had ever known in the past. The original call was to photograph Austin and an accompanying request to take a quick family photo while I was there. Prior to that day, while I had worked alongside Santo in some projects, I didn’t know his background as well as I might have.
When my wife and I arrived at his spread in Goshen, I was introduced to his father, also Santo and his two sons. In addition, we got to meet his fiance, Marta, and her son. We were treated to a great Italian dinner following the photo session. More importantly, I got to reconnect with an old friend and got to meet the rest of his family. Great day with wonderful people – I could only wish that all assignments were like this one.
