A mother’s pride and joy – family session at Alvarado Park
I met Dana when I was eight months pregnant. I walked into Waddle & Swaddle on their last open night, a packing party of sorts since the store was closing. I made myself comfortable in an empty armchair and struck up a conversation with this vibrant, forthright, open woman who was so easy to connect with and came bearing food! I knew immediately that we’d be friends.
Here we are a few years later and as her sons were graduating and the grandparents were here to witness this milestone, it seemed like a good time to get a few frames of them all together…
Another side to these two:
the silly faces in the second shot. And that the grandparents did not participate. Makes me laugh every time I look at it.
the pride and joy beaming out of Dana in that third frame. Pulls at my heartstrings. Love.
Dana and her mum looking at each other.
the boys laughing in one frame while their feet wrestle in the next one.
Dana’s beautiful eyes. Which she’s so kindly shared with her boys. Mama’s eyes. They see everything. Ha!
