Mother’s Day 2010

To remember my Mom on Mother’s Day I thought I would post my last formal portrait that I did of her.  This was a tough shot to take because she was nervous about having me do it.  So I had her sit in a lawn chair in her back yard.  To get her to smile, I asked her to tell me about her last trip…that got her going and and she began talking with her hands which she so often did.  I shot this with my old Nikon film camera–one of the last photos I did in film before switching over entirely to digital.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
