Amidst a global pandemic, I was inspired to create images of mothers. The project, born out of my own pregnancy, became a way for me to create continuity around my private experience and the realities of our current cultural context.

The intimacies of mother and child, the emotional and physical contours of my subjects, and the shared experiences of impending maternity, became a balm for the disembodiment of our individual isolation. Though our shared vulnerability was a constant, I was able to find hope: together our common struggles could create new life.

As the world began to emerge back to a new normal, I continued to document my children and the families I began with. This project is ongoing and aims to capture motherhood, childhood, and the beauty within the stuggle.
