Since 2012, Bryn Carr has run Wensleydale Cottage Farm with her husband and three sons. Together, on their 22-acre farm in Homer, New York, they raise animals for meat and eggs, grow fruits and vegetables, and make maple syrup.
As I learn to process motherhood, I am forcing myself to slow down and be present in the journey. This project didn’t start as a project - there was no initial idea or pitch put together. I just started taking photos to document my transition into motherhood and continued to take photos of my daughter, our family, and our experiences, together and individually. The goal is now to continue to be present, work through the emotions as they come, and give my daughter both something to look back on and a way to understand and connect with us. This project has become a modern-day shoe box, designed ultimately for the future when we can all reflect on our time as a family.
