Defining Motherhood



The Defining Motherhood Project


Be part of an exploration into the incredibly honest & authentic connection between a mother and her child, encompassing mothers of all ages. Through the power of photography and real life accounts of the wonders and struggles the journey of motherhood brings. Each maternal relationship will be immortalised in this body of work. The end result for defining motherhood will be a beautifully published fine art book that will be available for purchase and an exhibition to showcase and spread the realities of motherhood (maybe even a documentary!).

There is participation fee is $295 per family of which Mister+Lady will donate $80 to the Miracle Babies Foundation which supports premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them. Participants also receive a fine art print of their choice from their session at their personalised viewing. Every registered family is guaranteed inclusion in the book. Your session fee attempts to cover some of the costs involved in photographing, processing, interviewing, administering, writing and designing the book for publishing.

About a fortnight after you’ve had your session, we’ll organise to get together, record your story and browse through your images at your personalised viewing. This will give you an opportunity to select which one you like best for your included print and you may decide to purchase from our range of digital file, album & print packages if you wish but there is no obligation. All package options include your digital negatives to show, share & print as you wish. Giving you control and ownership of these precious memories. 

As of June 2018 we are halfway into the project, we have now been going since December 2014! Three and a half years has flown and it has gotten bigger and better with age. This project is a long term goal for us so are unsure of the time of completion but we anticipate the book to be printed and available mid 2020. It is now open Australia wide as we work on dates to visit each state over the coming year.

Share the love and tell everyone about this unique project.
