I felt like a reality show cameraman as I photographed three families for a slide show on parenting. Each shoot lasted about 14 hours. I was never more than a few feet away from my subjects. When mom was feeding her baby I was hovering over her with my camera. As her child napped in the crib I was shooting though the bars. Dad was never out of my sight as he tried to comfort his inconsolable child.
My assignment was to capture the highs and lows of being a parent. Here a few of my observations of the families I photographed.
