Generations

When I started photographing pregnant Rebecca, her mom, and her grandma, and positioning their hands for their portrait, I could not help but think how each of their hands had held the other, and had played such an integral part in their lives. 

And here I was capturing this moment before another generation was born, but already held in the portrait. 

I wanted to create something unique so I made a triple exposure in camera and then superimposed the same hands from the image. It was important for me that all of them be in the same frame and encompassed by the same hands of Rebecca holding her baby so tenderly, as she too, holds them dear to her heart.
