"I had a conversation with a woman I photographed a couple years ago that has stuck with me ever since. I asked her what her motivation was for getting her portrait taken and she explained that she’d recently lost her Mum and she had realised that there were no decent photographs of her. You see, her Mum was the one who always took the photographs, so whilst there were millions of pictures of everyone else, very few existed of her. Sound familiar? She didn’t want that to be the case for her children and so she valued getting in front of the camera every now and again."
