I think I may have found a title for my new work about family and raising a child.  I love how Brood not only refers to family or having children but there is also the connotation of rearing one at a time as well as the slightly obsessive qualities of needing to protect, and the uncontrollable urge to worry.  Also through photographing, I am dwelling or "brooding" on the changes in my daughter and the significance of the everyday, ordinary moments of child-rearing.

On another note, I have added a new webpage including 22 images for my new series Brood.  I am still in the process of editing and shooting of course, so this is just my starting point.  But I think it is a good edit and a good number of images for now.
