Thanksgiving portrait

This session in the series of mother-daughter portraits happened on a beautiful fall day in Golden Gate Park.
Karen is the busy mother of three, who does not have much time to hang out with her eldest daughter, Emilia, other than the time she spends with her when they go all across the US to a rhythmic gymnastics competition. Emilia attracted quite a number of curious visitors when she gave us a small taste of her art.

Later on we settled down to some more quiet portraits first at the Music Concourse and then in the Botanical Garden right across the street.

A portrait session can be the perfect time to catch up with each other and find out more about what is happening in the busy life of your teenager. These precious images will stay with you when your teen is long gone off to college!

Mother’s Day Portraits

“You said to lean on your arm
And I am leaning
You said to trust in your love
And I am trusting
You said to call on your name
And I am calling
I’m stepping out on your word.”

Maya Angelou “Letter to my daughter”

A rainbow in someone’s cloud

One reason why I love doing the mother- daughter portraits is the notion  that I can give something lasting to my clients. In our fast moving world of constant selfies and short, one or two word messages I am daring to take the time with you, the person in my portrait and create an image that will outlast facebook, twitter, instagram and all the other apps. Don’t get me wrong, I am using them all, but still I believe in true black and white negative film and anticipate a big comeback. That is the gift I can give to others.

Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud…Be certain that you do not die without having done something wonderful for humanity. (Maya Angelou, Letter to my daughter)
