  3. Capturing the memory of a child forever in a photograph is an amazing thought.
    This documentary moved me to tears. It's amazingly stirring and emotional, you've captured the feelings of the family, the staff, everyone so well.
    As a photographer, I can't imagine how Heather Rivlin could do that job, day in and day out. It's so much easier to take the happy route, to concentrate on joy, instead of sadness, but those pictures are so important to the family, I admire her for being able to do that for them.
