Mother’s Day Series: Anita
From the Mother's Day Series: "Through Mine. Through Hers. Through Theirs." A Mom's Project of beauty, self-worth and unconditional love created by Lorna Dancey of Lorna Dancey Photography. Through her eyes, she looks in the mirror
When I asked these children what they love about their Mom, they both couldn’t wait to tell me. They said EVERYTHING and fell over giggling. They love her hugs and her kisses, especially at bedtime after she reads to them. They said she is so happy and a lot of fun to be with. They love her cooking, especially the cakes she makes for them. When she goes away on a trip, they realize how much they miss her. They said the hugs she gives when she comes back are the best hugs ever!
The Mom Project: ‘Through Mine, Through Tours, Through Theirs’ was created out of teaching self-love. As a photographer, Lorna Dancey wanted to inspire all Mom’s to be kind to themselves and see the good in everything they do and in every way they love. Lorna asked Mom’s one-by-one how they saw themselves. She then brought their children into the studio to share what they loved about their Mom. The results at times were life-changing. She wanted each mom to see not what they saw as a woman or mother, but, in fact, what she saw. Most importantly, she wanted each Mom to celebrate themselves through the eyes of her own children and to see the importance of who they are so their children will do the same for themselves.
