I know it looks like a pretty regular image. Me spying on the girls through window into the back yard. But it’s special because they’re working together, in sync, and dancing, which they love. Because being cramped up all together for all this time the challenge has been to get space from each other, not together time. And so my heart leapt and my hands reached for the camera when I spied this little moment.
This is part of ARTIFACT MOTHERHOOD – a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.Go next to the wonderful artist Jo Haycock to read her post in our blog circle.

Paige Rains - This is a really special image that they’ll look back on and be grateful for someday!
