Every year I get a few graduation assignments from my local paper The Press Democrat. They’re exciting, emotionally driven assignments. Great moments happening all at once all around you and it’s about picking ones that resonate and tell us something about the people in the community.
Above I shot a Windsor High graduate getting the kind of adoration and respect I wish all kids could receive. I just fell in love with this moment.
Last year, I caught this moment from a father and daughter at the end of a graduation ceremony in Petaluma, California. It’s a real honor to be able to capture these moments for families like this beautiful embrace. I thought this shot was a great reminder of what it means to be a parent.
