Mother, a portrait project

The transformation that unfolds during a photo shoot occurs even for us Photographers. When I stepped in front of the camera, I felt vulnerable. It was intimidating at first but then it became exhilarating. Sharing this experience with my daughter was priceless. We laughed, we giggled, we connected, we bonded. To stand in that moment with her is something I will always cherish. To witness her blossom in front of me, bittersweet and I cried when I first saw the imagery.

Breathtakingly beautiful. Powerful. Genuine. I will treasure these portraits forever and one day she will have them to pass on to her own children.

As my daughter is on the precipice of womanhood I couldn’t think of a better way to honor this moment. It was an experience I wish everyone could have.

This is exactly why I chose Motherhood as the theme for my portrait project. Through the end of March, I will be taking limited sessions to photograph mothers with their children, no matter the age, here at the studio to capture and celebrate those relationships with the families here in western North Carolina.
