Ems: “The World At Her Feet”
Boo: “An unusual shy moment”
Me: “Bits and Pieces”
And then to have to show our faces?
Don’t we all feel better behind the camera.
The mirror shot.
It’s been a tough year and a half figuring out “who” I am.
But if I had to pick one word–mother.
This photo project inspired something else in me though. When Carolyn first posted the assignment it brought back a memory of something I had wanted to do years ago. When Boo, the youngest, was about two years old, I had the idea to take a photo of the four of our hands all together and frame it. Though I would have liked to see the small two-year old hand of Boo and the four-year old hand of Ems, I am glad that post-divorce I can now take the picture of this little family as it is, with no hard feelings about the loss of my husband. So here is the true nature of this little family to me.
The brilliance of love, a love between me and my beautiful girls that carries us through every day.
The strength of all three of us together.
