These images of domesticity are part of an ongoing autobiographical series, Raising Small Human Creatures, which documents the challenges inherent in the lives of many mothers. The images also chronicle the theatre of everyday childhood and all its accompanying emotions, following the peaks and troughs of domesticity. They highlight the moments of imperfection that deserve to be honoured alongside the shining ones in the spectrum of parenthood. In doing so, they aim to peel back the artifice, dispelling and puncturing the idealised and oversentimentalised myths of motherhood.
