"Momma's Glasses"


I loved this shot of my daughter Olivia from a couple of years ago when we ate at a place in Minneapolis called Annie's Tavern.  We were on an outdoor deck under red and white umbrellas eating burgers and malts.  Olivia picked up my sunglasses and was trying them on.  Wanted to capture her puckered lips and child-like hand - the plumpy fingers that I love so much!
