When I was contacted about this shoot I was asked to find something local that would show some of our surroundings. So I went with my standby, because really what shows the local culture like statues and a beautiful old building? Mom wanted her daughter to be able to look at these pictures in the future and to be able to see some of the neat things she grew up around - and plus she added a little bit of her own cultural heritage to give it that special touch. We had fun running around and looking at ducks and doing all sorts of things that two year old kids like to do. It was a good time and hopefully when L. is older she will say "look what I got to experience when I was little!"
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
