Aimee and I are currently enrolled in a year long family documentary photography classin which we have been finding cracks of time to get assignments and projects done
as well as watch interviews, lessons and critiques online.
This month we studied conceptual photography, which is a type of photography that illustrates an idea.
We are so used to documenting, letting the world tell the story, but for this project the idea was up to us.
After much thought, I decided to use a quote that I read years ago and it has stuck with me.
“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.”
This is me.
I am in constant battle with myself. Constantly wanting to reach outside this bubble I’m in.
But inside I know. This is my job. This is my job right now.
To give them my time, my effort, my peace and sometimes my sanity.
This project is about what I give to my kids. In abundance.
And that it is a beautiful thing.
