Mother And Daughter / by Julie Cruz

Being a mother to a daughter, myself, I know the love that this mama has for her baby girl. I also know that our babies are growing up way too quickly....and there's nothing we can do about it, but capturing the moment while we can, is just one step closer to attempting to freeze time. I wanted to make sure and capture that for Latanya and Mia. When we talked about locations, one place that came to mind was a place we all love... The New Children's Museum, the only problem is that they don't allow "photo shoots" here. Luckily for us, I have worked with TNCM for years (doing shoots for them), and Latanya, who started the San Diego Jr. Glee Club has performed there with her kiddos, so our friend who works at TNCM was able to get us permission to shoot there (thank you, Lani!). During our shoot, we also needed to update Mia's head shots, and man, oh man, Mia's smile and laugh is just perfection! I loved shooting these two.......
