Mother Daughter Portraits

This is me and my beautiful 16 year old daughter. I've been wanting to do a mother daughter portrait for a long time, but kept putting it off because I wanted to slim down first.  So many women use this as an excuse not to have their portrait made, and I was no exception.  Then life happened, and my daughter received a scary medical diagnosis.  Suddenly, the portrait was no longer about me.  We went ahead and did it now despite how I felt about my weight.

It's so important not to put these things off for "someday" because you don't know what life has in store.
