Mother and Daughter Shoot – Ruth and Rachel

Just before I left Toronto, I met a beautiful new client Ruth. She had come in for a shoot to update her head shots for her coaching business, and mentioned afterwards that she would love to have a shoot with her mum.

It was such a special shoot, Rachel is in her late 80’s and is so vibrant and sassy. There was a lot of laughter, stories and fun during the shoot, and we sat and chatted for a while afterwards. Watching the connection between Ruth and Rachel was such a joy and I felt really honoured to be part of it.
This is one of the parts of my job that I absolutely love, where you become really bonded through the process of the shoot and really share the time and space together.

Ruth had asked that this be a black and white shoot, and specifically to have an image that showed their hands.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to capture these images for Ruth and Rachel, and that these will be something that they will both treasure for many years to come.

Here are a couple of images from the shoot… hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

  1. These are so special Angela! I love the shot of their hands, and the way they look at one another. I love a good black & white.


  2. It’s so easy to get caught up in the frenzy of life and relationships… I love it when people slow down enough to make time and space for what really matters. You gave them a precious gift, Angela πŸ’•


  3. I feel the black and white adds so much to the photographs. I really feel the love and the bond the mom and daughter share and you can see the connection with their eyes. I did a very basic hand photo of the hands of my nana, my mom and I when I was a teen and it is a photo I will always treasure. So lovely that you created this memory for this family.
