Today I got reminded why I love photography so much. A friend of mine lost her son yesterday. I didnt know him to well, but he was a really good kid. 19 years old, way to early to go.
Anyhow, he graduated this past spring from High School with Jeannie's nephew and half brother so I got some shots of my friends son getting his diploma and walking off stage.
I took them over to her today on a disk, and she was very thankful to get them. I was so glad to be able to give her something to help her remember her son by.
This is what I love about being a photographer, being able to capture and preserve these special memories for people. It is a very fulfilling and rewarding profession.
