Antidote to Madness

So much has changed since the Presidential election in terms of my optimism, my sense of safety, my vision of what's to come. It's been a difficult time. Something that helps to combat the stress is spending time with families and focussing my lens, physically and mentally, on the love and connection there. 

I recently photographed Nicole Kenney's family. Nicole's a photographer so she appreciated some of the more off kilter shots that I love to make. Here are a few of my favorites. 

Lizzie Rose in the Field

My lovely niece, Lizzie, lives very close to nature. It's a childhood very different to mine and different than my son's, although he gets to experience it alongside her when we visit. Through watching her comfort and ease with animals and dirt, I've become more acclimated. I learn a lot by watching her. Not least of all, how not to be scared of worms.

Momma Love benefits Women in Need for Mother's Day

From April 8th-May8th (Mother’s Day), for every copy of my Award-Winning book, Momma Love; How the Mother Half lives, sold through MommaLoveTheBook.com, I will donate $10 to WIN NYC.

WIN transforms the lives of New York City homeless women and their children by providing safe housing, critical services and programs they need to succeed on their own. 

Get the gift The New York Times named a Top Mother's Day Gift two years running! Gift a copy to a momma and I will include a hand-written note with the book thanking the recipient for the donation to WIN that you’ve made in their name. 

Please share this offer so I can present WIN with a nice donation this Mother’s Day. Momma Love isn't only about the love a mother shows. It's about the love she is shown, by herself and the world around her. Let's show all the mommas they're loved this year on May 8th.
