I was asked, yesterday, to send some photos of myself and my mother to NBC. Since camera crews were unavailable, they were considering just showing some still shots during our segment. Sitting at my desk at work, my options were limited, and I e-mailed Sally Ryan, the photographer that the New York Times sent to the house a few weeks ago.
I asked her if she had any photos that she was willing to share. She very kindly emailed back a few of them this morning, shots that I had never seen.
I fell in love with this one, immediately:
This photo captures perfectly what any day with my mother is like. I have always laughed with her, and even through some frustrating times now, and some occasional tears, we still laugh, like this, almost every single day.
I am most grateful to Sally Ryan for sending me these photos. This one, I will cherish forever, I am sure.
(Sally's website is under construction; I will most certainly link up to it when it is up & running.)
