Contact me if your daughter, up to age 15 and located in NYC, would like to be involved in a video project about female empowerment. The hope is that when my son is older and I explain to him how, in 2016, we elected a President of The United States who undermines women at every opportunity, he'll say to me "Wow! That's insane! Things are so much better for women now. That would never happen!"Read More
The Guardian sent me to DC to unearth stories behind why people marched in the historic Women's March on Washington, Saturday, January 21st.
Some words that come to my mind to describe the day: powerful. poignant. prideful. hopeful. encouraging. meaningful. shocking.
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.
Some of my favorite unpublished moments from election night 2016. The feeling of watching one little girl's mood turn from elation to devastation wrecked me.Read More
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.
Forest School is not something that happens for us much, meaning ever, in New York City. So when in rural England... #Skipton #Yorkshire
In the window of our adopted home in London for part of Summer, 2016.
I can be stern with him. I can tell him he's being silly and say he knows I'm coming back soon. But when he falls to pieces because I'm heading out the door, there's a part of me that melts and never wants to stop feeling this important to him.
Day 16. London, Backyard. Computer repaired after 10 days. Settling in to daily life. Laundry on the line. Picnic with the worms and slugs. Laziness, a concept nonexistent in New York.

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.
After 20 years of releasing albums and touring around the world playing music, this is the most personal music I've ever made. Inspired by my son, I wrote it, played it, recorded it and shot the video (also starring my son). It's an homage to our relationship and to my life as a musician and now a mother. Hope you enjoy!
I love when the work and stories from my book Momma Love end up in foreign magazines! It's evidence that a mother's love and a mother's challenges are universal. That commonality moves me. Thank you, parenting magazine, Eltern, out of Germany!
