family photojournalism :: tessa + claire

Tessa and Claire have a special connection, characterized by hope and joy. Together with Claire's "big sister" golden retrievers, they've got a lot good going on. I joined them at home for a couple of hours one day to simply capture their ordinary life together, mother and daughter. From play time on the floor, to a little laundry, picnicking in the yard, getting the mail, taking a walk with the dogs, diaper changes, feeding time, and going down for nap, it was sweet to see how in sync these two are. We ended our time together with a few snapshots of some of what Tessa does when Claire is napping! I loved including this, and I think it was a first.

Here's to mothers and daughters, and the sacred ordinary.
