Mother & Child - Self Portrait

This was a very personal project and challenge for me, that is dear to my heart.  I am a HUGE fan of Joyce Tenneson Portraits. "Her work is a combination of portraiture and mythology-she is interested in discovering the archetypes of our being." I so love the rawness of her images, and the souldful mood they portray, these are the types of images I wish to create.    The simple soft lighting and the tomes she uses.  I have obsessed for months to create my own mother and child portrait....and I have finally done it.  These will be beautiful fine art matted printson Hahnemuhle German Etching paper, printed by Seldex!  Cannot wait!  I look forward to creating more soulful mother and child portraits for others.

When I look at my own child, I see but a shadow of my own reflection.
