Artist Statement

This category of work has taken on a life of it’s own and has evolved into a great love of mine. It has intense personal meaning to me because of my longtime desire to have a family of my own as well as my current role as a new mother. Having the opportunity to photograph these families, children, and mothers has been somewhat mystical for me and I find something familiar about my own life and love for my partner and children in the resulting images. It is an honor for me to be allowed into the sacred spaces where these photos have been taken. ~Jesse
