Three Generations

My friend Jennifer contacted me a couple of months ago to set up a photo session that would include her, her 14-month-old daughter Isabelle and Jennifer's mother. She told me she and her mother have a tradition each year of having a portrait taken together around Mother's Day.

I was honored by her request and told her how much I admire her tradition -- and that I'm a little jealous, too. My mom died five years ago, and some of the things I treasure most are the photographs of me with my mom. I only regret that I don't have more of them.

Jennifer, her mom Sandra and little Isabelle met up with me last weekend at Gardner Village. What a fun spot for a photo shoot! Isabelle definitely gave us a run for our money! She is absolutely adorable, though, and I hope I was able to capture some of her cute little personality.

Here's a sneak peek for you, Jennifer, Sandra and Isabelle. It was a lot of fun working with you! (Hope we can do it again next year!)

Aww, these are priceless! What a beautiful tradition... and it just struck me, I hardly have ANY recent photos of myself and my mom! I will remedy that- SOON!
