It's always a pleasure to photograph your friends and their families. Knowing someone always makes it easier to put everyone at ease (including myself), and I enjoy meeting other family members and seeing the dynamics of the members. Getting a group together for a family photo is always an event. While most people are indifferent or uncomfortable in these situations, there is always someone who instinctively knows what to do in front of the camera. I don't know if it's just intuition or an internal confidence in themselves, but connecting with these people is always a pleasure. Emily's Holy Communion day was a special event and I could sense the excitement and pride she had in achieving this milestone. It was fun to be part of her special day. She obviously, conencted witht he camera.
