Moms and Daughters

Sarah contacted me a few weeks ago. She said that she would like a portrait with her 16 year old daughter to capture this moment in their relationship. She described their relationship so eloquently - "intensely raw - at times we are ready to kill each other and at times we are best friends." For all parents of teenagers reading this, you completely understand that contradiction. No explanation needed, right?!

In addition to Sarah and her daughter, Sarah's dad and sister joined in the session. It was so enjoyable to photograph this family. Since the majority of portraits I photograph are of little ones, under 5 years old, it was a inspiring change of pace to spend some time with them. It became clear that they are an extremely close family so it was meaningful to capture that intimacy for them.

Here's your slideshow!
