I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet this sweet family on Saturday. I took their portrait just before a Mother's Day lunch near the Wayside Inn in Sudbury. Fancy attire didn't stop these kids from running, climbing, jumping, splashing -- and luckily their mom didn't mind. There are plenty of solid shots from during the session but I'm sharing these that I snapped right after we all agreed we were done shooting. Maybe because it's Mother's Day or maybe because I'm missing my mom who lives so far away, but I just adore these moments between a mom and her small daughter.
I love the honesty in her little hands. They gently speak:
"I need your attention"
"Up; I want to be closer to you"
"This is familiar; this is comfortable"
And I love the warmth in her mother's smile. It gently speaks:
"I see you"
"You belong here"
"I love you"
