What has torn me down, built me up, crushed me, filled me up, and been the most challenging aspect of being a woman in this world today? Being a mother.
Yes, being a mother is greatly rewarding and the love that seeps from my heart is unmeasurable. It is also fiercely challenging and blindingly painful at times. As a single mother I am constantly grappling with my identity, my independence and my career.
I am translating what its like for ALL mothers in this world today through intimate portraits. Young mothers, older mothers, single mothers, mothers of older children, mothers of children who are mothers, mothers who have lost children and children who have lost mothers. I am looking at the private moments when we are struggling to find time to be who we are and also when we realize just how much love one can hold in their heart. This is a long term photo essay of the many women I am lucky enough to call friends, peers, and inspirations.
