The image of of a mother and her little girl in Spoleto (one of Umbria's most beautiful and historical towns) makes me smile and tugs at my heart in more ways than one. The adorable little girl loved posing for me and showing off her outfit and the mother was delighted that I wanted to take pictures of them. I so enjoyed watching these two lovingly interact before asking if I could photograph them. For me they represent the best of relationships between mothers and daughters and bring to mind the special bond I have with my daughter.

Note: My dear JPG friends please check out my latest essay. I'm hoping this is the kind of gender role story JPG is looking for. Thanks!
