This week I photographed a special session celebrating four generations of women.
It was an honor to be invited in and witness the love and affection they have for each other.
The other aspect that made this shoot so special, were the sentimental items they chose to include. The first three generations are all creators, interested in the handmade arts and crafts. The doll, the needlework on the rocking chair, and the Hardanger embroidery were all made by the great grandma (Generation #1).
I’m sure that some of these skills, and certainly an appreciation for the handmade, will be passed down to this little one.
What an incredible gift this was – to gather together to celebrate their relationship and preserve their family history.
“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own.
There’s no bond so strong in the entire world.
No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”
Have a blessed Mother’s Day.
