0-3 - From Zero to Three

Raising a child is one of the greatest experiences in life, a miracle that can turn your life upside down. Who is this new person you're raising and who is this new person you're supposed to be? Shot at kid's parties, these photos seek to capture the incongruity and sheer chaos of the early years of parenting. Moments are fraught with joy and uncertainty, enthusiasm and exhaustion, loving kindness and a touch of absurdity - exposing the tender souls of young parents. Their sudden urge to structure time, with family reunions, endless birthday parties, costume balls, and picnics without rain dates, may seem like a desperate grasp at control or a sad replacement for social life, but with a bit more empathy, we can't ignore its genuine celebration of life.
