"Caring and strong, they know tough work and the warmth of the one she loved."
But amid the high-pitched pleas for sugar, toys and snowball fights are a million tiny, fleeting moments that normally go unnoticed and undocumented. Besides faces, I focused a lot on hands today, because sometimes they can really tell a story.
For example, Amelia's hands — soft and new, yet insatiably curious — get her into trouble throughout any given day. Touching this, picking up that, throwing something else — it's all in a day's work for a baby. Then there's my mom's hands. Caring and strong, they know tough work and the warmth of the one she loved. Bearing both her wedding rings and my dad's, they also tell a story of love that transcends life.
Though it's always better to live life rather than to spend it on the sidelines, sometimes I need days behind my camera to remind me of all the reasons I love experiencing it.
