The Hopkins At Home

I believe in motherhood.  I believe in praising the work mothers do. I believe with all of the messy and ugly moments each day, they're stronger than we can imagine. I believe mothers should be recognized.  This is the stuff of life. This is their toil and reward_.

I love photographing mothers with their children so that's what we did here in St Andrews, Scotland, in a house called Ivybank. Nothing fancy, no planned outfits. Just Angela with Sebastian, Katharina, and Pippa, living out the every day.

Let's never forget these moments.

It is not until much later...that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones...
