One of the biggest changes a person can go through is becoming a parent. I began documenting the process when I first found out I was expecting a baby. In the beginning my focus was on the changes my body went through, then it became more about family life and building a home as a single parent.

At the same time I became fascinated with how children learn through play, combining sensory experiences and language.
