I’ll confess, Shelah and I often talk about Suzanne the moment we part ways on our morning run; she heads south, we lope east and we gossip, “Suzanne is the nicest, sweetest person I know.”
“But she’s also completely down to earth. And she never judges me.”
“You should have read the thank you note she sent me. I think I’ll frame it and put it in my front hallway.”
You get the idea; we’re terrible muckrakers.
Suzannie, much like today’s writer on Segullah, thinks she’s just ordinary. I’ve never agreed with that assessment, but after spending an afternoon with her beautiful, delightful, spunky little girls, I am in awe of Suzanne’s natural, patient, conscientious mothering.
Meet Kate, age 10, constantly looking after the little ones; helpful, gracious and unerringly polite.
Ellie, age 8, sweet and shy; a dancer and a violist.
Claire is the wild one!
and Sarah Jane is the baby.
We caught a few of Ellie in her baptism dress,
the sisters together,
and of Claire, just being Claire.
Suzanne, you are extraordinary. Your little girls will change the world, one smile at a time.
The photo of Claire lying down with the apples is absolutely incredible. It’s breath taking! Great job!
Mormon Women: Who We Are
These photos left me feeling like, “Yes, there is hope for the world.”
Photos that represent mothers (whether visually seen or not) touch me like no other.
I feel the same way about Suzanne!! What a small world:) and you are so talented…xoxo
These girls are all beautiful, but Michelle! The photo of Claire in the grass is stunning! Gorgeous photos.
