Letters to Our Daughters | February 2013

Over the last couple years, I have been writing letters to my children. Through my letters I am able to permanently record my thoughts, share my love, and teach important lessons. At first I thought of these letters as “gifts” to my children; now I realize they are “gifts” to me that I will cherish forever. I wanted to share this project with other photographers and bloggers, and be inspired, in turn, by the way they express their love for their daughters through imagery and word. I am humbled that several amazing women chose, without hesitation, to join me in this project. On the 25th of each month, we will share our images and letters. Each photographer will link to another, and we will form a small circle of links. We may live in different places and lead very different lives, yet there are several things that bond us: we are all photographers, we are all mothers, and we all love our daughters.

Please continue on to the blog of my dear friend Amy Grace of A Beautiful Life Photo to see what she has to share with us this month. When I look at photos of Amy’s beautiful daughter, I can see so much of her mother. When I read her words, I am always transported into her world.

    amy grace - the way you tied it all together…that all they have to do is look in the mirror. i love it. i had this sense when i was reading your letter that you are just overwhelmed with loving them. all of those beautiful descriptions alone are just laden with love. your images are always this perfect escape. perfect, but with heart too. how fitting that there mommy is a master of light. they will understand everything you are giving them in these lines, as they get older, and see that you are special to them, but special to the world, too <3 xoReplyCancel
