My daughter Naima will be turning 7 in a couple of months. She has been one of my main models since she was a baby. I started to learn photography years before my daughter was born, but it wasn’t until I had her that I started to actually acquire what some people call “the eye” for photography.
My daughter (and my husband) became my main subject to photograph mainly because of the proximity. It was not easy for a new wife and mom like me to go out and search for subjects to photograph and create photo projects. My daughter, however, was always with me and it was just a matter of getting my camera and just shoot away at her. It was fun. I would spend entire days (and entire rolls of film) following her and capturing all those moments that as moms we always want to remember.
In every sense of the word, my daughter is my best work…
Here are some photos of Naima’s most recent photo shoot for spring, at Tree Tops Park in Davie, Florida.
