I was invited to witness and capture a very special moment in a young Catholic’s life- the 1st Communion. And although it was not allowed to take photos during the actual ceremony, we were able to capture the excitement and family love. This young man was so wonderful- I hope that my children will grow up to be as respectful and polite as he is. His mother and family must be so truly proud of him. And I am positive his loving father is looking down on him, so proud of the young man he is becoming and being a guiding hand for not only him, but his mother and brother as well. At this age, keeping still for photo after photo isn’t always the easiest (or the most fun) and even though I could tell that he was starting to grow tired of all the photos, he still listened to every direction and request from his mother and myself. I felt proud of him, I can only imagine how his family feels!!
