It was so much fun seeing my friend Leigh after 8 years. We took a digital photography class together at ICP in New York in 2005 and have only kept in touch via Facebook and the odd phone call since then. She lives in Toronto, I live in Sacramento, not the best logistics for staying in touch! She contacted me spontaneously because she and her siblings were planning to treat their mom to her dream trip to SF for her 65th birthday. The siblings come from all over the globe and it was a very special treat that they all got to spend time together. She asked me if I’d capture this rare reunion with a few photos if I was free. As it happened, I was free and it just worked out. I only spent about an hour with Leigh and her family in total. It was like “Hi, I haven’t seen you for 8 years, okay bye!”. Even though it was short it was really fun and a privilege to be able to capture such a fun and special occasion for her family.
