When I arrived, Mom was fresh out of the shower and Mimi was still asleep. I was excited to shoot my favorite thing – a family moving about their normal routine. Their Saturday morning went a little something like this: Mimi woke up, checked me out and discovered I was okay, changed into her favorite pajamas, made breakfast, played with her dinosaurs, water colored, got dressed, and cut coupons … all in her quiet, assured little way. Then we headed out to feed the ducks, but when we couldn’t find any, Mimi ate the bread instead.
She called me Miss “Tawa”, and I taught her how to carry around her favorite dinosaur in the front pocket of her overalls.
