Motherhood Thesis Project

I just completed my Thesis class for school.  I have been attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online since March of 2011.  I am so close to being done.  Now that I have my thesis class done, I have 3 more classes to go before I graduate and receive my Bachelors of Science in Photography.

I was so incredibly nervous about this class, because I never thought I would come up with an idea creative enough to do well for my thesis project.  Now that I am done, I am saying "that wasn't so bad"; it was even one of the classes I enjoyed most.

I wanted to share my project with everyone because I really liked how it came out.  I love doing documentary style photography, so I decided to focus on that.  I thought of the idea of capturing motherhood.  I wanted to come up with something that I could achieve in my 5 1/2 week long class and something that I could gain access to, and I know plenty of mothers. 

So please take a look at my project and let me know if you think it looks like motherhood to you.  I took a ton of photos for this, and narrowing them down to 20 and sequencing them was probably the hardest thing to do.  I had to remove some other great options.  Overall, absolutely none of these photos are posed or directed.  They are all just captured in the moment. I hope you enjoy!
