The Story of June and Joy

Hello friends! I've designed the MOMLOVE event to celebrate and document the incredible relationship you have with your mother or with your children. To book your half hour fine art photography session on May 30th at Harden & Huyse Chocolates, simply email me at hello@jocelynfisherphotography.com or give me a shout at 905.373.8765. These time slots are by appointment only. Session fee funds go to CORNERSTONE FAMILY VIOLENCE PREVENTION CENTRE to support programs for women and children. It's an amazing way to have the legacy of your connection with your mom or children documented while giving to a wonderful organization. It really is a win-win situation! Read on to understand the deep impact a mother-child photo session had on Joy Gilbert.

She took a look at me that first moment, and our Mother-Daughter love affair started and kept going until she drew her very last breath. My love for her, my Mum, June, Junie-Taboonie, Mumsie is simply indescribable. But when I look at Jocelyn’s photos of us together, I can see the love. Mum has been gone nearly two years now. When I feel sad and lonely, I remember her loving words as she advised me how to go on without her. She said, “Don’t cry and carry on. Go out with your friends, have a good time and be happy. When I’m gone, remember that I’ve had a fabulous life and you’ve been my dearest treasure. I know you love me, but you’re going to have to let me go.” So I try not to cry. When I feel sad, I’ll go to my purse and pull out my two treasured photos, both shot by Jocelyn. In the first, she’s kissing my cheek and I’ve got my eyes closed and I’m smiling. In the second, some years later, I’ve got her wrapped up in my arms and we are so happy. In both pictures, we look like we’re basking in the love!  Who could have guessed that Jocelyn would contribute so much to me. It’s strange, but I can’t even remember these shots being taken. They look completely natural and spontaneous. With every passing day, these photos mean more to me. They have become very dear to me and again and again, they remind me of my precious Mother and our deep abiding love for each other. Thank you, Jocelyn!

From the heart, 

Joy Gilbert
