To say that motherhood has been a powerful and life-changing experience for me is an understatement.  And I know I'm not alone in that - it's one of my very favorite subjects to shoot, because of how personal and emotional that connection can be.  So it's always an especially lovely occasion when I'm given the opportunity to work with mothers and their mothers.  I can't even imagine the love a grandmother must feel seeing her beautiful daughter become a good mother to their grandchild.  And what an honor to be able to capture that for this sweet and love-filled family on a humid but gorgeously golden afternoon here in coastal Massachusetts.

I couldn't help but sneak in a couple of grandmother and granddaughter being silly together.

Rocky as it was, we couldn't not go down to the little beach and put our feet in the cool water.

We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories. These are the moments when the world is made whole. In my children’s memories, the adventures we’ve had together in nature will always exist.

And yes, that's an actual butterfly floating casually through the frame, out of focus of course.  Next time, butterfly, you let me know when you're going to make a dramatic appearance, okay?


It was such a joy to work together, thank you!
