About the Book
I consider these photographs a form of self-portraiture. In each image, I find my best and worst traits reflected back at me through their attitude and gestures.
There is a delicate balance a mother walks when she chooses to maintain her own identity while raising her children. For me, this work validates my time spent as a mother and an artist, in a way that is both concrete and emotional. It also gives me permission to be engaged with my children while still adding to my body of work.
I consider this a permanent work in progress,
as are both my children and myself.
