Inaugural Ceremonies

Melrose Mayor Rob Dolan and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker lift up Mayor Dolan's daughter, Kiley, as they walk towards the stage at Memorial Hall during the beginning processional of the City of Melrose Inaugural Ceremonies.

Along with the start of the new year comes various inaugurations and state of town and city addresses. For this image I positioned myself in the center isle planning on capturing the mayor as he walked towards the stage. I was surprised to see the mayor, his daughter, and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker walking towards me. I was ready as they spontaneously lifted up Kiley Dolan.
