A Mother's Love
October 1, 2019
Amma, which means “mother,” in Malayalam (the main language of the state of Kerala, India, where Mukul's family is from), is such a wonderfully kind and calm soul. I couldn’t be any happier to have her represent the South Indian culture in my series, Transcension. She was born, raised, and lived most of her life in Kerala, India. One of the cultural traits she brought with her from India, is her love and complete devotion for her family and children. She has always treated me as her own daughter from the moment we first met.
Mukul (who was my digital technician for the shoot), me, and Amma were having way too much fun during the photo shoot. My experience making this portrait of her and the final resulting image I got from the shoot, is something that will always remain dear to me. A mother’s love can never be matched, so cherish yours.
