I took this picture of my Mama, taking a picture. It was just a seemingly random picture that I didn't give much thought to. I pulled it out recently and it just sort of hit me. She is the foundation, the influence and the catalyst for my creativity. She always encouraged and nurtured it. And it is a HUGE part of who I am. From piano lessons to singing to drawing to crafts to scrapbooking to photography and so much more, she was the cornerstone of it all. So this picture has come to represent a lot for me.
Journaling: (Title) In this picture, she is taking a picture. She is capturing her family's life, moments frozen in time. She instilled this in me, this love of finding and seeing beauty in my world. She encouraged and nurtured my artistic side. She is a big part of who I am today. She will always be an inspiration to me. She is Mama.
