Laur Kappauf // Spokane Portrait

Sitting in Laur's garage was her Mothers old bike. A 1950's Columbia with a ton of history. Laur used to ride on the back fin with her legs in wire baskets surrounded by books, bags of groceries & maybe even a toy or two.  Her mother did not drive until she was in 3rd grade, so she spent a lot of time on the back of that bike. As she grew & went off to college, she took it with her & it roamed with her for years. 

Sadly, Laur's mom passed away a couple of years ago. She asked me if I would be willing to take a few pictures with her & the bike to honor her mother & the wonderful memories that came along with it. There was something so touching about this portion of our shoot. I could feel the emotion in her eyes & see deep into her soul. The connection she had with her mama was evident in something as small as a metal frame with wheels. Also pictured is Laur's beautiful daughter Anika. Almost as if all three generations were sitting there together. I just had to share these images with you all. I simply couldn't resist.
