About The Project


Just a Minute: Moments in Motherhood is a creative project combining photography, quotes and writings, by Melanie at Simply Mella and of The Frozen Moon.

Inspired by one of a mother's most frequent phrases to her children - shouted when she is beckoned beyond a closed bathroom door, or muttered quickly when she has just put a phone to her ear - Just a minute! - Moments in Motherhood, gives her that.

The goal of this project is to truly see women in their journeys of motherhood and to give their ordinary, everyday, peanut-butter-and-jelly-and-Cheerio-crumb moments the focus, even if only for just a minute.

Melanie spends time with each mother, a fly on the wall to their daily routines, capturing these moments.

The hope is always to illuminate the beauty in the chaos, the extraordinary in the ordinary, and the strength found in balancing the demands of motherhood along with the preservation of herself as a person outside of label: Mother.

Mothers are amazing. Women are amazing.

Let's celebrate that.
