Testimonial: This summer I saw my mom age, my first daughter leave for college. For the first time I was needed by old and young.
It gave me a sense of my feminine ancestry. From before my mother, through me, to my two daughters. I wanted to capture its feelings of courage, humor and sensual power. Two days of heavy summer rain helped me decide how…I’m not eager to be in photographs. I felt a little timid and wicked climbing a rock bare-assed in the morning light. I told myself this was for others and knew, before my toe touched water, this experience and expression was for me.  C.D.
