The responsibility of a new life is always going to weigh heavy, but equally motherhood is not about perfection. I have documented the life of my best friend, a single mother who faces the responsibility of caring alone for a new life. There have been times when I stopped and watched, in the slip of her emotions, that she is scared, anxious and worried about facing her new life on her own. But these moments are only fleeting, for she instantly rebuilds and pushes forward. Kayleigh tells me that 'being a mother is the best feeling in the world', but in these photographs I also wanted to reflect the difficulties and magnitude of the responsibility of single parenthood.
