I took these photos in October, to document the day my mother got a tattoo (yes, my MOTHER got a tattoo!) I do share “personal” work all the time on on Shoot With Personality, but I’d held off on posting these photos here until now. I can’t really explain why, except that they felt extra personal. It was a big deal that my mother got a tattoo, it meant a lot to her, and it ended up being a wonderful experience. I finally decided “Why not share some of that on my blog?”
