I go to the old ‘New River’ in Foster Falls, Virginia quite often in hopes of finding the illusive Blue Heron that likes to play hide and seek. This particular day I knew by the light that the ‘golden hour’ would be special, so I asked a friend to ride down with me to see what we might find. While walking towards the blue Heron spot I happened to glance back over my shoulder and spotted this Mom Fly fishing while her grandsons, not so patiently, watched and knew this was what I came to shoot!
I love the story of this moment, a Mom stopping at the river to grab a little peace before heading back on the road and towards all the demands of the home and Motherhood.
I yelled permission to continue to take her picture and she graciously agreed. we chatted before all of us ‘Moms’ moved on down the road towards home and our obligations. It was a golden moment to remember and so glad that my friend and I were there to capture it.
