Sean lives down the street from me so I have know him for a long time. He always takes the time to wave or say hello and is super polite. My most enduring memory of Sean is from when he was in 5th grade. My oldest daughter and his brother were in 2nd grade together and my budding assistant was in kindergarten. One day unbeknownst to his mom and me, the school had decided to move their bus stop without informing us. So as we were waiting for them to arrive home from school, the bus zooms by us. The driver was not supposed to let anyone off without a parent, never mind a kindergartener. We had a few shaky seconds as we contemplated the options: 1) they got off the bus and crossed a very busy street or 2) they didn't get off. We shouldn't have worried though because Sean came walking calmly down the street with the whole group in tow.
I found Sean to be just as polite and well mannered during our photo session and his affable attitude allowed us to hit some cool spots and get some cool shots. He even let me practically blind him with the sun.
