MOTHERS & SONS

So I’m going to venture outside my comfort zone, dig deep into my heart and do a sentimental post.  Here goes:

A couple years back I came across a book called  MOTHERS & SONS; Why Sons Always Need Their Mothers.  I loved the images and  captions in the book and immediately purchased two copies to give to my sons at some point down the line (like maybe right before they get married…..)

The book is written by Dana Bottenfield and has heart-warming illustrations of mothers and sons, along with apropo feel-good captions.  I’d like to share some of my favorite photos and excerpts.

With this book as my inspiration, my (iphone) camera and I trekked and tracked down the amazing posh staff and attempted to capture some moments with these beautiful mothers and their sons.
