Mum’s magic photos: Look once, be impressed, look closer and be moved
Holly Spring is a photographer from New Zealand. She is also a mum, and her daughter is the subject of some of her most impressive photos.
Apart from being stunningly beautiful, Holly’s little girl Violet has something else setting her apart – she was born with Hirschsprung’s Disease, a complication with the bowel and colon, and missing her left hand.
Not wanting her daughter to feel ashamed of her difference, Holly set about creating a series of whimsical images that show just how special she is.
“My daughter is my muse and my heart that inspires me to follow my passion and share these unique photos and digital art with you,” says Holly.
Her photography won the NZIPP/Epson Iris Portrait Creative Photographer of the Year award in 2014.
Check out the images below and marvel at this mum’s creativity, and the love that shines through every picture.
