35mm Mommas

Over the last two months I’ve been scanning my grandma’s old family slides and have collected some real gems of motherhood and grandmotherhood in photos from the 1950s-1980s. I’ve been obsessed with photos my whole life (surprise!) and pored over our family albums as a kid to the point where I thought I had seen every photo of my grandparents, parents, and me and Ian that my family possessed. These slides revealed images of everyone that I had never seen before; it’s been a real treasure trove. I’ll share more soon but here are a few motherhood and grandmotherhood favorites to celebrate Mother’s Day!
