This project has been quite unintentional. I’m sure there are many mum’s out there that can relate to the challenge of photographing boys. They’re messy, unfocussed & they never sit still. This boy is my boy. My muse. My youngest of two, and getting a decent photo of him is, well, pretty much impossible… unless of course he’s asleep!
I find intense comfort in these moments of motherhood. The stress of a frustrating day is instantly washed away by the flicker of dreams & the soft breath of existence.
In two short weeks this little man will be 5! I still don’t know where that time goes. I’m sure at least 100 different people told me my children would grow in the blink of an eye & I’d wonder what happened, but you never fully understand that until you’re there, living through it.
It has always been my intention to photograph the little things for my kids. The small, everyday moments, but honestly this is the only time he’s still enough!!!
Enjoy. Updates to this collection are bound to occur 🙂
