Laughter and tears

I met Penny, Posey, and their sweet mother Judy at Greenlake on a sunny Sunday morning. It was an absolute pleasure to work with these women, and I’m struggling with the words to express how much this shoot impacted me. They were so loving and tender with each other, and it was wonderful to see and be able to capture some of their special moments together. Judy's granddaughter joined us for a few minutes and it was so sweet to see her snuggle right into her grandma. She found the perfect cuddle spot and planted herself there. It seemed like the wind and the chill in the air (that had been bothering her minutes before) ceased to exist to her as she sat in her grandma's arms.

As I edited these photos I was moved to both laughter and tears - laughter as I saw the expressions and attitudes so clearly written on Judy’s face, and tears as I saw the emotional moments between a mother and her daughters.

I hope someday my daughter and I share a love as palpable as theirs.
