a few weeks ago was my very first time driving in the emotive fort logan national cemetery en route to photographing a memorial service for a client. with soft classical music in the cd player and the wind blowing my graying hair as i traveled to the spot of the service, my mind wandered. i was so moved to be the in the presence of such sacrifice , commitment and loyal service. tears welled up in my eyes as i thought about all of the lives that had come before me to protect and serve our great country.
the actual service itself that afternoon was swift but powerful. the family hired me in order to be able to share the memories of the service and the family gathering with loved ones who weren’t able to attend. i was honored to have been selected as their photographer and the historian to capture this lovely memorial.
it was a gathering to celebrate and honor a life of service to our great country surrounded by the circle of cherished family and friends. such a respectful and sweet ceremony; a bittersweet moment in the reflection of a life well-lived.
to my dear client: thanks for allowing me to post some of these powerful images. it was an absolute honor to attend the service for your father.
