Erika + Gloria - Mother/Daughter

Last week, via IG, I posted a photo of a bouquet I gathered from a field I had just done a photo shoot in. I couldn't believe the colors and textures I was seeing with every new step, and by the time we reached the edge of the field my hands had been rubbed raw from pulling up these little beauties - worth it!

Also, my cat - she's pretty great.

This session was an interesting exercise in bringing together a shoot that was authentic to the relationship shared between this mother and daughter, had an artistic flare, and incorporated an element of family history.

Erika and Gloria shared with me that, up until Erika was married, the two of them would catch up over afternoon tea. What is more, the tea cups in these photos are family heirlooms; and the quilt was sewn together by Gloria's mother using materials pulled from clothes worn by Gloria and Erika's great-grandmother. All the "wants" for the shoot were encompassed in this very special afternoon!
