As a photographer and a lover of so many images it is hard to pick a favorite one, but I must say this is one of my all time favorite photos. Even though I have no real memory of this day, I can only imagine how exciting and magical it was walking into the ocean for the first time hand in hand with you, my mom! Thank you so much for showing me the world! And even though I miss you dearly, thanks for letting me go away on my own, to create my own images, and discover what exciting and magical pictures the world holds for my future.
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you.
P.S. Sorry I am a day late!
