I’m one of those persons that have a hard time remembering “the old days”, so I have almost no memories of my mom and dad ever being tender with me. But I remember those happier childhood moments, if I can look at some pictures. Is it like this for you, too?
This is why I’m drawn to photograph different types of affection between family members. I want to make sure that when kids grow up they will have the proof they have been loved. They will have proof that their parents were there not just as parents saying always No, but as play-companions, comforters, and best friends.
