I chanced upon photography after I became a mother myself and the one thing I always missed was that I had no one to take a picture of me with my daughter. Something special... something that spoke of what we share. That feeling inspired me and so when I took the camera I decided to depict motherhood in its many forms through my work.

Now wherever I travel in the world, I make sure to photograph mothers everywhere. I call it my "motherhood project". The one thing that runs through all of my motherhood shoots is that I don't have to ever pose the mothers. I just ask them to hold their child and it is simply magical what emotions are reflected in every frame.

There is something so truly magical about the love of a mother and her child.

It's so simple, it's lovely, they look like they've gone outside to see the sunrise. Yet also reminds me a bit of Les Mis, Cosette and her mother....

It's not often that I find myself thinking: Nice random chicken placement. But, totally just did. So sweet.

This feels so sad. Or maybe the dad is "away on business".
