10 0n 10: April

My oldest daughter, Kyle, is a very busy girl.  She is in her last year of college. She works as an art teacher.  She has an active social life.  While I don’t see her often during the day, she is my morning workout partner.  Every once in a while, she has a few hours during the day and we get a date together.




She has always been my shy girl and at the very same time, she is very brave.  She loves doing the hard thing… the impossible thing.



She has her mother’s love for food.  All food.  She especially loves ice cream. There is a new ice cream shop in town. It serves ice cream in donuts.  I think she goes there two times a week!





It has been such a pleasure and honor to be her mama.  And as we slowly transition from a mother/child relationship to a mother/grown woman relationship, I am enjoying the friendship that is blooming.  I feel like I not only raised a strong, courageous young woman but a wonderful friend.



All photos were taken with my Mamiya 645 on Ilford XP2 film.


I am telling stories in ten images with a lovely group of photographers.  Hop on over to Maite Pon’s blog for her 10 on 10 then journey through the rest of the stories.

    Such a beautiful heartwarming post. It is such an amazing time isn’t it. My daughter has truly become a wonderful friend as she has passed through this stage, and I could not love her more. These are such wonderful memories captured. xx
