Portrait of My Kids (2008)
This photo was taken in 2008 in the driveway of our Pasadena home. The kids were heavy into skating and riding the Ripstick and on any given day, they were outside just being kids. I look at this photograph today and only now do I read what their faces were telling me at the time. They were being struggling with just being kids because their innocence was about to be taken away. 2008 was a very difficult year for everyone and when I look at my kids today, I am just beginning to sense that things are going to be alright, in good part, thanks to the strength that Maura had nurtured into them.
