Ethan and I were friends many years ago and then sadly we lost touch. I had heard through the grapevine that he was living in NYC doing cool stuff like owning a restaurant/wine bar. I was so happy to hear that he's moved back into town and was thrilled when he contacted me about setting up a shoot. I spent some time at his house and got to meet his son. They showed me the back patio, the garden and the swing; and then the little guy climbed some trees. I think we were able to capture the feeling of what that late summer afternoon felt like, hanging out with old and new friends barefoot in the backyard.
