MFA Here I come!

Have you ever had a line from a kids book constantly going through your head? My kids have this book called Feelings – it’s got great rhymes and pictures. “I did it! I did it! I shout to the crowd. Getting dressed by myself makes me feel proud!” Well, today I get to shout “I DID IT! I DID IT! I SHOUT TO THE CROWD! GETTING INTO THE U MAKES ME FEEL PROUD!”
University of Minnesota MFA here I come! I’m shocked, amazed, scared, and feel so, so proud.

The photographs in this body of work approach motherhood through ideas, feelings, stereotypes, and documentation. I hope the vulnerability that comes from using my own life and family as a backdrop results in photographs that become less about the individual experience and more about something greater and universal.
 
Every day for one year I made, edited, and uploaded a photograph for discussion to my website. By committing to this rigid, demanding photographic schedule, I mimic the rigid, demanding schedule of motherhood, allowing me to document a year of complex thoughts, ideas, and feelings.
