I thought kids would be a career killer. Lucky for me, it turned out to be the opposite. There are still some stragglers, folks with ideas and values that don’t line up with the progressive structure of our family. I do find myself explaining my situation - I work, my husband is a full-time parent. Why ? But mostly, I’ve found a different way of seeing. As a photographer I’ve become more efficient, a better director, and more compassionate and thoughtful overall. When a working man has a family, people say “Oh -he’s great, a family man.” When a working woman has a family, folks are more likely to question, “How does she does it, can she do it, what does she do with her kids ?” Still, things have progressed so far, and I’m thankful.
