I have a lot of respect for mothers and all that they do. So right around mothers day, in cooperation with the Women's Resource Centre in Golden, I offered a little drawing for a complimentary portrait session for some lucky mum. Mineko Beleyme was the winner, and I went over to spend some time with her and little 4 year old Julieann a few weeks ago. As it turns out they have an incredible backyard for photography, with views of the mountains, climbing vines, and my personal favorite, the Kicking Horse river at the back of the lot.
A bit hesitant at first, Julieann and Mineko both found their strength in front of the camera. Julieann might even have discovered a new passion . . . . that little girl can work it.
