Mothers and Daughters

 I've been editing this family's photos today... and there are so many beautiful ones... I just love them. I have so many stories to tell about this session, and I'll share them, I promise.... but right now I have to share a story of my own.

Yesterday my teenage daughter, Aubrey, was in a little car accident. Everyone was okay, but it shook her up pretty good. As we were crying together last night, I just kept thinking over and over again how grateful I am to have her in my life every single day. She is my only daughter, and she's also a best friend. We share hugs, we share clothes, we share frustrations, and I can't imagine my life without her.

As I was editing these photos of another mother with her only daughter, I was thinking how much we limit ourselves when thinking about what constitutes a "photo session". I'll shoot a few with mother and daughter(s) when we're doing an entire family shoot, but these two were so beautiful together that I kept thinking how much fun it would be to do an entire mother/daughter photoshoot... how much fun it would be to do one with my daughter. These moments are fleeting... life just flies by, and we forget what it was like now. I've really been thinking about things... and I'm hoping to do more "different" sessions in the near future... break outside of the traditional photo session ideas. Do you have any ideas for some great sessions? Shoot me a comment... I'd love to hear your ideas!
