Things happen to us or around us that change us, change the way we see the world, and the way we think about things. Travelling, marriage, loss, anxiety, and disappointment, they all bring subtle, slow changes that became evident over time. But, when you become a mother, your whole perspective on life, the future and your goals shifts, and you find yourself in entirely unfamiliar territory. Nothing changes you more than becoming a mother. To highlight this change and express her gratitude for everything mothers have done, Lithuanian photographer Vaida Razmislavičė has created a project titled “Becoming A Mother” where she photographed women before and after becoming mothers.
She photographed 33 women for her project with all the photos taken before and after the ladies gave birth to their first child, focusing on their eyes in particular. The artist thinks motherhood is a deep experience, filled with joy, pain, exhaustion, and love. Scroll on to see some her amazing photographs listed below and enjoy folks!
