Letters to our Daughters | June

Dear Gianna,

I can hardly believe that we celebrated your birthday and now you’re 3! I still call you my baby and every single time you correct me and tell me “no Mommy, I am NOT a baby! I am your BIG girl.” I do see it, you’ve changed so much so fast that’s it’s a little hard for me, but I promise sweet girl, I’ll catch up!

Every year around your brother’s birthday (since he was 3) I have asked him “birthday questions.” So this year was your year to answer the birthday questions! You remembered playing this game with Landon only a month earlier and you felt so important that it was YOUR turn! I thought it would be fun for you to look back not how I see you at 3, but how you describe yourself at 3. So here you go…

I love you forever and always, Momma

As a mother and a photographer I am lucky to have found other women who share my passion. Their images and words resonate with me and this project has allowed us to share our stories with each other. Please continue over to read Jennifer’s letter to her sweet daughters.
