    Edit Photo Details Self Portrait of Motherhood   #motherhood
    A self portrait taken through the window of my kitchen to show the beautiful chaos that is motherhood. Motherhood brings new experiences and challenges every day - every day a new milestone is met. Milestones for my children, milestones for their mother. Small achievements feel like huge successes. On this day my hair needed to be brushed and the washing needed to be hung out - the washing won out. Motherhood has inspired me to become a woman who can do many things and to make my children proud.

    Parenthood, and all that goes with it, is one of those universal themes that I suspect people around the world, regardless of cultural differences, can connect with. This image feels timeless. Your stillness and the expression on your face, Laura, as life moves around you, feels quite poetic. And, the way you share information about the scene and your reflection on motherhood elevates the visual storytelling.
