Mother's day is an emotional and often sensitive day for so many people, for so many different reasons.
Seeing joy, love, excitement, shyness and toddler tantrums in a photo fills me with a sense of reality, of life and of living. I love the view point that an unposed image gives us as the viewer. The way that documentary photography can draw you in and make you feel like you are in that moment with the subjects of the photo is so powerful. It is real and it is honest and that is what I love most, how perfectly imperfect life is. It is so important to exist in photos with our children. Do we want to look back when these years have passed us by and realise there are no photos because we were waiting for the perfect moment? There is no moment more perfect than right now to be in photos with your family. I am so thankful to my mum for taking so many photos as we grew up, with family members, on our own, with her an my dad. Photos decorated our house and now they decorate my home too.
