We yesterday was a first for me and a bit of a surprise as well. I got too photograph a funeral for a friend who's husband died very unexpectedly. Wasn't too sure how I was going to handle it. Taking the photo's I knew wouldn't be a problem but I wasn't sure how I'd handle it on the emotional side of things, I tend to get upset seeing other people upset (guess I'm a bit of a softie) All went well, I was able to stay detached and take some really great images..... no red eyed crying mourners, just dignified, discreet shots of the mourners at the service and the wake, should have enough material to make a really great Memory Book. In the past I've turned down funerals but now I'll definitely respond more positively.
