I have been shooting my children since they were born. It’s a deeply meaningful time we spend together. Creating together has become something that connects our souls. Sharing art and passion with my beautiful creatures has been something I am immensely proud of. I never shoved them off, hid the explicit nature of my art from them. Nope, they are apart of it. They understsnd it and I love hearing their thoughts and ideas. Sometimes the collaborate and add their own ideas. I am a firey human. I am focused and obsessive and passionate. I am raising chikdren who are also passionate. Intense and confident in their ideas. I could never stop what I am doing regardless of “motherhood” the only answer was to create an inclusive environment. To not hide who I am. To not edit my topics, themes. We have conversations about it. It’s not always easy but we share the love of creating. I never push it on them. If my daughter dosnt want to shoot, she dosnt sometimes. I say ok, you just let me know when you want to. It’s not usually long before she says. “Mommy can we do a photoshoot. I look forward to growing together. Watching them developed their own voices and creating much more. There is so much left to say.
