The seeds for this project originated after seeing "The Brown Sisters" by Nicholas Nixon which presented over three decades of portraits and offers insight into the power and presence of photographs taken over time. Shortly after, I was led to this family  - two Mom's and their curious, precocious two year old. Though the project began with a once a year commitment, it's since shifted to include other times throughout the year as our relationship has grown into a friendship of life and the end of life and all things in between.
