'‘More Than Just a Mum is a photography exhibition curated by Jenny Scott of Mothers-Meeting and Sian Williams of Baby-Friendly Boltholes. It celebrates the changing face of modern motherhood, and features 20 of the UK’s most influential and creative women, such as Pippa Vosper, Stylist and Harper’s Bazaar fashion editor and Alex Box, world-famous make-up artist, in their role as mothers.'

Since I've become involved with Mothers Meeting this also happens to include me… make of that what you will! In a touching quirk of fate all the images featured in the exhibition are shot by two photographers (and more recently mothers) who frequently used to shoot for Amelia's Magazine in print: Jenny Lewis and Tara Darby. Both are known for their deceptively casual photographic style, which is brilliant at capturing personality.

Scott says: “The exhibition will be a celebration of modern motherhood, correcting the preconception that once a woman becomes a mother her whole world, career and identity grinds to a halt. This exhibition aims to inspire every single mamma and show the rest of the world motherhood is not the end of a woman’s life, it’s just the beginning.”
I'm sure that most mothers know this only too well already, but the 'More Than Just a Mum' exhibition should serve as a reminder to any doubters out there… Enjoy just a small selection of the wonderful portrait photos on show...
