Toward the end of my latest senior portrait session, the senior pleaded with her mother to take a shot together. The mother, completely unprepared for this request, was hesitant at first but was soon convinced to do it. I myself had to switch gears completely and devise a pose and composition suitable to a mother/daughter portrait, and I don’t think I could be more pleased with the result. The lighting, color, composition, poses, and expressions are all beautiful. The moment is captured wonderfully, and the message of mother and daughter love is unmistakable. In many respects I think it’s one of the best portraits I’ve ever achieved.
