A big thank you to Life Defined Project for choosing my photo for their recent theme: Texture.
Over the summer, my friend, Lisa, shared with me that as a child of adoption, she had no known biological link on the planet other than her daughter. For years, Lisa struggled to get pregnant and her daughter was something of a miracle. Her story touched me and I wanted to capture photos for her that highlighted the precious connection between mother and daughter.
I used the rocks, not only to lead the eye to Lisa and her daughter's beautiful interaction but also to symbolize the rocky road it took to get here, to this precious relationship.
Texture is just one of the many elements that adds to the storytelling of a photograph. Let me tell your story. To see Lisa's full post click here.
