Why Are You Doing The Mother-Child Creative Los Angeles?

What is the inspiration for this Los Angeles family photography fine art experience?

I am doing this because Motherhood is the most important relationship there is. My name is Katie. I'm a former special education teacher in Los Angeles Unified.  During my 15 years of teaching, I interacted with a lot of moms.

My experience gave me an authentic and unrelenting respect for Motherhood. The sacrifices, the physical distress of pregnancy and nursing, the emotional distress of seeing their kids move through phases of adoration, backtalk and unappreciation. And how much of Motherhood is done alone. As much as dad helps, it's Mom kids run to, it's Mom they cry out for, and it's Mom they want when they are upset. This continues, for most, into adulthood.  

Motherhood has a lot of amazing aspects too. But there is a loving tension between what's fantastic and what's troubling.

The admiration I have for the Mother-Child relationship is neither new nor original.  Great Masters from past centuries have agonized over how to capture the complexities of Mother and Child interaction. Now, I'm adding my own vision to this timeless endeavor through photo artistry.

In my creative Mother-Child sessions, I am aspiring to create images, portraits and digital art that speak to others; in galleries or local exhibitions. I encourage you to contact me about being part of this creative project.
