Letters to Our Daughters | May 2012

I am so fortunate to be participating in Letters to Our Daughters with several other wonderful and talented photographers. We may live in very different places and lead very different lives, but we have several ties that bind us. We are all photographers and bloggers, and we have daughters whom we adore. We express our love for our daughters in photographs and letters and share them in a circle of links on the 25th day of each month. This project launched last month, and was met with a lot of support and kind wishes. I am so thankful to all the women who took time to comment on my blog or send me a message. Your words of support mean the world to me and I can’t thank you enough.

Next in our circle is the very talented Emma Wood of Emma Wood Photography. Emma recently made the move from Australia to England with her seven children, a feat that I cannot fathom. Yet knowing Emma, I’m sure she accomplished it with relative ease and a whole lot of grace. The images of and letter to her sweet daughter Poppy that she is sharing today are very beautiful.
