A Mother’s Day

A Mother’s Day: Rose Valentino became a single mother shortly before her daughter’s first birthday. With little support from her ex-boyfriend, Rose struggles to maintain a job as a residential and commercial painter, fight bipolar disorder, and care for 17-month-old Alex. Throughout her strenuous day to day, Rose does whatever it takes to remedy anxiety, social isolation and depression as she adjusts to an unexpected life of single motherhood. All of these photos were shot in a single day in the life of Rose Valentino. Thank you Rose for allowing me to capture a day in your and Alex’s life.
