Jess, Danny and Mia, 2010

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 Finalist

In 1985, when I was pregnant with my first child Jess, I produced a body of work based on my pregnancy. This is my daughter's first pregnancy and I was honoured to be able to photograph her. The subjects are Jess and Mia Wasikowska, and Danny Wild.
