As photographers, we spend a lot of time worrying about perfection. We move clutter out of the way, we cull hundred of photos to find that perfect shot, we photoshop imperfections, we clone, we edit, we remove all that is deemed undesirable. My intention in completing this project is to capture a years worth of authentic motherhood. I want to remember the mess, the chaos, the tantrums. I don't want to pretend my life is perfect, I want to embrace the madness and document it along the way.
