Natasha is originally from Belarus, where her mother and family still live.
This year her mom came to the U.S. for a few weeks to visit.
Since they rarely get to see each other they decided to have photos done.
These two are a wonderful pair and absolutely hillarious together.
Natasha's mother speaks Russian, and is learning English, so I couldn't follow much of what was being said...
But when it comes to laughter and smiles there's no such thing as a language barrier!
...and yes, her eyes really are that blue.
Capturing the National Monument, Maroz style.
...there's just something about this image. This mother-daughter duo shares such a strong and beautiful bond.
