“There are a few times in life when you cross paths with people who truly inspire you. Alexandria Smith is one of those people. Her devotion to her children and her ability to capture motherhood for what it is, is truly inspiring. She has photographed mothers in all seasons of life and her ability to tell their story is what makes her such a talented artist. When the opportunity presented itself for me to capture a few images of her with her youngest child, I felt absolutely drawn to her energy. In my time with Alex, my biggest takeaway was this: every mother wants to be seen, and if you can capture that for her, it will be her biggest treasure.
The embodiment of motherhood is what fuels my passion to document its beauty. As a mother, one is undoubtedly a nurturer to her child. Her purpose is to foster support, unconditional love, and encouragement in her child’s life. When I photograph Mothers, I want the images to reflect the love and compassion that radiates from their hearts for their children. Through this, I hope that every mother can recognize that the love she has for her children is the most beautiful art form.” Photographer, Lynn-D
