      She was/is a love child. Always way cooler then i’ve been. Thank you. My photography teacher/father took this image. I’m jealous that she is holding my brother & not me. Although, I had to be in my father’s arms for him to have taken the image. Maybe I was learning then. ~amy

  2. Beautiful photo, she reminds me of the actress from the “Love Story” movie: soft, warm, tender, very stylish and very beautiful. I have an old photo of my Mom too and every time I look at it I always marvel how beautiful she was(is). Your father has indeed an excellent eye for photo shots and also for picking the right girl! Thanks for sharing your find.-Eva:)

      She ALWAYS looked cool. During my teens, I thought I looked cooler because as a teen…she didn’t know ‘anything’ how wrong I was. I look back at me, i was silly looking. She shined no matter what the current fashion was. Thank you, Irene. ~amy

      Thanks, Liz. My father was the photographer. He caught a magic moment that now sits beside my desk. I wish it was ME in her arms, not my brother…lucky guy. ~amy

      Well Mark. I remembered seeing that image as a teenager & thinking how much I LOVED her necklace/choker & when I found this photo again, I realized I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to pull the choker off. I also thought that she was so young to have two babies & still look like a movie star. Thanks for asking! ~amy
