“A mother is always the beginning. She is how things begin.”
― Amy Tan, The Bonesetter's Daughter
I spent the morning with friends at the Morton Arboretum, capturing portraits in the beautiful light of the first hours of the day. It was such an early shoot, that Milo got to tag along with me! I don't normally recommend taking your 3 year old to work, but we had a lot of fun & since I was working on a Mother's Day portrait, it sort of made sense.
I have a lot of editing to do, but when I came across this image, I just wanted to share it. It is almost exactly the image I saw in my head when I was thinking about this shoot.
