Capturing images of these four generations was truly one of the most fun I’ve had capturing grown ups. They were all together for the first time since some of the little ones had arrived. They were all so excited, and their energy was contagious. Shirley is simply lovely, and I can’t even express the honor I felt being in her presence. Feeling the obvious love and joy that was present that day, I can’t help but think that Shirley did an incredible job being a mother. Those of us moms know how hard a job it is. We all feel like failures so much of the time. But if I am lucky enough to be with three generations of my children, and to have what they had that day, then I may feel like I did an OK job after all. I can only hope.
