During portrait sessions, mothers oftentimes express amazement at the magnitude of feelings
they experience. To document these expressions, I invited over 100 women to my studio for portraits
with their children and asked what Mama Love meant to them. The mothers range from single
teens to married professionals. Some are first time mothers, others have many children.

This series aspires to give the viewer a glimpse into the special bond between mother and child. These women are not madonnas or mother goddesses to be idolized. They are fully human, expressing all the complexities of parenthood. Their personal anecdotes are heart felt and universal.
