The Watsons of Watts

By Mary Monti

Amanda, Emma, and Maggie Watson may seem like a normal family at first, but upon getting to know them, it's clear to see that these women have a special bond. At Watts Elementary, Amanda teaches pre K & kindergarten across the hall from her kindergartener Maggie, while upstairs Emma attends fifth grade. The three of them have a deep and genuine love for one another, one that's apparent and inspiring to everyone around them.

I want to thank the Watsons for allowing me to photograph and get to know them. I've truly enjoyed spending time with their family and learning from them. I hope that I've done their story justice and wish them nothing but the best for their last year together at Watts.
