Before I photographed Barbara Bush a few years back I remember thinking of her as this sweet old lady that I would have thought to be like mine (or most people's) grandmother . I could not have been more wrong. I was actually intimidated by her some what . She was this strong powerful woman and this shoot didn't actually last that long - she wasn't having it ! Years later I shot photos of her son George W. and he was aware that I had done this shoot of his mom and later when he and I were getting our photo made together he said (as we posed) into my right ear only for me to hear ...."Yeah ....how many did momma let ya take ?".....to which I replied ..."not very many sir." He then said ...."Yeah ...I didn't think so .." which was then followed by his famous shoulder laugh.
