Chet was killed in an auto accident on August 25, 2012, in addition his brother was seriously injured. Chet was a very special young man with a humble smile and caring heart. I had the chance to meet this young man briefly when he escorted my cousin to their San Marcos High School Prom last year in 2011. We had a chance to take some prom pics, which turned out to be my first prom picture session.
Needless to say I was shocked to learn the news. As a photographer you take pride in taking potential heirloom photographs of seniors, grandparents and the likes whether at a special event or in a generational picture or portrait, with the ultimate realization that TIME IS in fact LIMITED, but you never expect a photograph of a teenager could become one.
