Prior to speaking at a vigil for victims of Friday's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, President Obama met with the families of those killed in the mass shooting.
Among those family members were the daughter and granddaughter of Dawn Hochsprung, Sandy Hook's principal who was killed in the shooting. Hochsprung's daughter, Cristina Hassinger, captured a touching moment between Obama and her daughter.
Friends and family of Emilie Parker, a 6-year-old victim of the shooting, were also photographed with the president.
