102: remembering

I get asked often to photographic people's celebrations; everyone loves having pictures to of their happy moments to look back on.

This was a sort of celebration, too, of course. It was a celebration of a full life, many career accomplishments, of the creation of a great family and years of holding all those things together, a recognition and remembrance of dignity in the face of decades-long fight against a horrible and debilitating illness.

I was really honored to have been asked to capture this day for this family, but it was a much harder task than a reunion or birthday party.
