mother daughter | 01

I could feel the pulse of her heart beating in a soft rhythm against my chest, and suddenly, I wanted to hold her tighter. I wanted to hold her forever, past the minutes and hours and days. Past the weeks that turned into months that evolved into years. I wanted to hold her still, in that very moment with her heart pulsing against my chest, forever.

Mother Daughter is a new series I’ve created in a small attempt to document the time with my daughter: my youngest child. I am determined to embrace these days, to capture the essence of life and to foster our bond that begins in the heart. I am determined to soak in every inch of my children because I know the minute I stop, they will be grown and time will be lost.

“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood - finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”
― Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match
