She was so beautiful!  That’s me with the dumb look :) #karensueholder
My Mother’s camera :) 

I remember her teaching me to shoot when I was 10 years old on this. We were hiding off to the side with a trigger, shooting humming birds off our porch in Spicewood, Texas @karensueholder #canonae1
Developed some new black and whites with SuzAnne…

These were in the same batch as three rolls that I shot as my mom was passing. Those three came out completely blank; that camera met with a brick wall shortly after and it felt so good ‚úč

By my beautiful Mother, 
Karen Sue Holder; my god do I miss her. This is one of my favorite shots of hers. 

Like everyone, she had her good and her bad, and she wouldn’t hesitate to beat my ass when I needed it.  My brother thinks he got hit harder, but I think I just refused to cry :) @tomvfry01.  I remember getting caught shoplifting while I was with my Mom and brother.  My Dad came home and calmly said, “boy you really pissed off your Mom”.  I think he also warned me to stay in my room for a bit. My Mom was stubborn, and made damn sure not to spoil us, but there wasn’t a thing she wouldn’t do for her kids… 

And her smile, don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so pure.

My Mom passed away this morning at 3:35 am <3 

She was lovingly held by all three of her kids when she passed.  The last we saw was a smile. She was the greatest mother anyone could ask for, and my personal hero. In her own words, “Happy Friday, make it a great day! Love to all.”
