The Birth of Atlas

between the earth and the sky,

between the world and abyss,

atlas, born into love and peace.

mother, daughters

in these days her mother is only her mother, 

a constant presence and force, a tethered tension.

the world never existed without her.

one day, later, she'll see her mother as whole.

girl, woman, human. 

someone who has lost and loved herself into the person she is today. 

someone who made the daily choice to show up for her daughters and mother deeply and well.

Kari of Living Life's Moments so graciously invited me to step in to her home and capture an evening with her daughters when she is simply and extraordinarily just "mom". It was an honor to document a piece of their sweet, uninhibited love and I'm so thankful for the chance to be with them.
