This photo makes me all kinds of happy.
After dinner, he turned to my mom and said, “Will you rub my head for awhile?”
Ever since Josh was born, he and my mom have shared a very special bond. She rubbed his head from the time he was a toddler and he never outgrew it.
The fact that he is a college freshman and will be 19 years old in less than three months matters not at all. The unconditional love they share is a beautiful thing and I was so grateful that I could capture this moment in time.
My mom’s favorite role in life is that of grandma. And she is a stellar one. (I love that she was even wearing her favorite “Grandma” sweatshirt. I couldn’t have planned it any better!).
Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Photographs capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
That is why I love what I do.
