By the Ocean, in The Mud Room

 

Meet the first mother daughter duo

On another warm, sunny and glorious winter weekend I met up with Georgia and Lola for the first “push-me-pull-you” portrait. We met in their sun-filled house in the Outer Sunset of San Francisco and took some time to contemplate the appropriate location for each of the portraits.

Georgia picked her artist studio, The Mud Room, as her favorite place to hang out with her daughter. Georgia Hodges is a San Francisco based artist. She owns and manages The Mud Room at Ocean Beach, a small ceramics cooperative.

Lola loves to come and hang out with her mother, drinking out of her gigantic tea cup, which is of course handmade by Georgia. Here they can spend some quality time together.

Lola on the hand choose to go to the beach for her mother-daughter portrait. The eighth grader is an avid rower and surfs several weeks every summer in a junior life guard program in Santa Cruz. We reached the dunes just in time for a spectacular sunset. The two huddled up together in the fading light and shared a brief moment of peace and quiet.
