These two have such a beautiful connection. Watching them explore the river together was truly captivating. The rocks, the water, the ducks, her little wet & dirty feet, blueberries, wild flowers and sweet kisses created such a stunning setting for capturing their bond. Photographing the lovely intensity of a mother + daughter bond is something I cherish. Hazel is at an age where she was a bit unsure of me. She gave me those looks letting me know she wasn't ready to let me in and she held tightly onto mom where she knew she was completely safe. This created a closeness between them that told their story. It was such an honor to document these two. By far some of my favorite images.
