I love photographing the connection between two people.  I love discovering the intimacy, the nuances, and the quirks of their relationship.  And I enjoy that there are always surprising elements of personality that emerge when you witness a person’s deep connection with someone else.  For this reason I love to photograph couples, best friends, parent and child, sisters, and so forth.  This is one of my favorite portrait experiences.  Amy & Rae have a great connection and they are so relaxed.  It was heartening to see a mother and daughter have such a sense of respect and admiration for each other in the way they interacted and talked about the other.

Amy was called into work so we met at her office and I styled Rae’s hair & makeup and photographed her while we waited on her Mom.  We continued to work hair & makeup and wardrobe changes in between photographing sets and Amy’s work.  Even with the work hiccup, we had a great day and caught so many beautiful shots.   Spending the extra time with them was a treat!  Read what Amy has to say about our time together.  And since there was too much photographic goodness to share in one post, catch more of their portrait experience here.

To mothers & daughters,
