Old favorites, revisited

I was recently looking through some older photos, and found this picture of newborn Mason, which I fell in love with all over again. Now, a couple of months afterwards, I think that this picture is my favorite of him.

This is a slightly older photo that I took at my Grandma's funeral. Someone alerted me to the fact that they were getting ready to release doves, and I turned around just in time to capture this inspirational shot (well, to me at least!). I have had the opportunity to be a photographer at two funerals in the last few years, and strangely enough, I love it. There is something special about the cross-roads of life--birth, weddings, and funerals. Despite the sadness that surrounds most funerals, I have found the emotions and reunions and memories that surround funerals to be touching and priceless.

I love those two pictures. It's amazing you caught that moment with those three birds all flying at different stages.
