About 14 years ago when I was just falling in love with taking pictures, I followed my childhood friend’s son, Hollis, around with my camera.  I followed him to soccer games, I stalked him at his 2nd birthday party, I made him climb trees and roll around in the grass for my folly.   Recently, my friend Julie ( his mother) asked me to fly out to Faribault, MN to shoot his graduation from Shattuck-St Mary’s and it was an absolute honor.  He is like he was as a young boy: patient, kind, smart, witty, and conscientious.   The boy who helped train me is going to Cornell University on a soccer scholarship.   Congratulations Hollis!
