"If you want to change the world, go home and love your family." - Mother Theresa
These words, always come to me when capturing a precious moment between a mother and child. This is life, I think to myself, as the world's unsettled affairs dissolve outside.
Each session, although unmistakably a portrait of the universal felicities of motherhood, is also a unique story specific to that family. Sometimes the session is filled with joy and laughter, but it is not uncommon to be moved by a just a simple moment of honesty.
I make no distinction between artist and subject during these sessions that I regard, above all else, as a shared experience. My photos are more than just images - they are love letters, to my own daughter, who upon entering the world 6 years ago, took me by the hand and ushered me into this world of motherhood. A world filled with beautiful and inspiring women, that exists outside among the most fevered pursuits, and inside inbetween the smallest, quietest spaces...
...where the world can truly change.
