When I look in the mirror nowadays, I see my facial features softening, melting a little. I look like my mother. I am becoming a beautiful crone. A wise woman. Like her. When I see her through my camera viewfinder, I see myself in 20-some years. And I hope with all my heart, that I am as good and kind and loving a human being as my mom is.

I am lucky because I have been involved in this young woman’s life for over 4 years. I am lucky because she allows me to know her — the real her. I am lucky to watch healing happen in the heart a girl who was so wounded … and to see her find a partner who cherishes her, who is a good papa, who is gentle and funny and real.
Izzy is so photogeneic!
Attachment parenting really works. Check out this photo essay showing some of the concepts of the Circle of Security as seen through the lens of my camera. Shayla and her almost-one-year-old toddler, Elijah were awesome subjects during this photo shoot. She has a strong foundation in attachment parenting from taking one of the parenting classes at Florence Crittenton in Helena, Montana.
