Introducing Miss Marlowe R. Jennings!
Children are some of my favorite subjects to photograph, especially newborns. I always think of how I feel when looking at photos of myself and my parents while I was a baby, and I want to recreate that for others. Looking at photos of a time you cannot remember, but can see how loved you were from the start is something everyone deserves.
Nothing like a good story time and cookie making just before Christmas, and the Stern family is absolutely adorable! Especially little Ms. Martha who made some beautiful cookies and enjoyed the heck out of the "Thomas The Cat" storybook.
Over the weekend I finally went through an old suitcase of my grandmothers'. Inside were dozens upon dozens of old and uncared for negatives. Some showed my mother as a child, some of people no one remembers.
Tucked away in a yellowed envelope was a poorly folded roll of 35mm film from the beginning of my grandparents relationship in the early 1950's.
I have always felt that connecting with the past is important, and seeing these images of a woman that I was so close to, and love so much makes me feel that much closer to her.
