They invited me in before sleepy eyes were even rubbed awake. But then the warm sheets they shared together grew cool as with the twinkling rising sun dancing yellow through their kitchen, the day unfolded its magic of noise, wonder and delight alike. The truest documentary art I’ve been privileged to make. This is a motherhood project from Allison Corrin Photography in Kansas City.
I’d love to do it all again.
And by love, I mean, my heart is aching for what is real.
Because other mothers need to see the sheen of the flame of the fire they’re so fiercely living in, shining through as gold.
Because waking at dawn and walking the dog and bus stops and school drop-offs and going to the pool and cheering for soccer and shopping for groceries and baking the cookies and doing the laundry and bathing the baby and practicing the piano and pushing the playground swing and building the science projects and kissing goodnight,
your story, my story, motherhood’s story
it’s all the story of being faithful with entrusted souls.
And creating a capsule of sorts of one day from this year
might be a part of journaling the hard, the messy of what is incomplete now
and how it is made beautiful.
The Motherhood Project
may be my way of etching the words of your very own heart.
