Run, Get your camera

Posted on Jan 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ever have a moment when you walk in a room and you say, wow, I need to get my camera right now because something special is happening.  I had one of those moments tonight when I walked into Geno’s room (my nephew) and saw his mom Camille reading him a bedtime story.  The moment was real.  I could see how much it meant to both of them, this ritual that helped comfort each of them each night.  Camille had just finished a pretty rigorous dance schedule in preparation for a dance show and it had required her to spend hours practicing late into the night. Unfortunately it meant that she missed this nighttime ritual with Geno.  She told me after I took this picture that she didn’t think she would do another dance show because this particular moment with Geno each night was so important to her.  Sometimes a picture can paint a thousand words. I think this one does.
