Like many I fell into the waters of photography by way of taking snapshots of my children. Curiosity and wonder enveloped me as I imagined what they were seeing. I couldn’t help but play right along with the light all around us, visually experimenting and escaping into the images I was making. Photography has become a way for me to explore myself, see my way through troubles, and when it is best – step into an alternate reality which illuminates new perspectives pointing me back again to what is most meaningful in life. The parallels between the creative process and the journey of motherhood begin to emerge for me in these photographs.
