This is our everyday pictures…of my youngest son Theo and me. When i became a mother for the third time i realised how fast i had forgotten the first years of maternity. To be with a child everywhere and all the time, 24/7, no pauses, no private space. According to social media, for a mother is easy to have a time for all the children, be always fit and beautiful, to support her husband and keep their House clean at the same time… 24/7. But in fact, a woman with a small child never have time for herself and for her husband and she needs support and help more than ever.

Russian born Olga Steinepreis lives with her husband and three children in Freigericht, Germany. She studied Computer Aided Design.Olga started photography in 2011 attending classes in a photography school in Saint Petersburg, in addition to take various seminars and workshops. Her works have focused on capturing moments of maternity, femininity and childhood through self-portraits and photos of her family members. In her recent photo-serie "Maternity 24/7",Olga uncovers one mother's life, who has no pauses, no private space in her everyday life that is easy to live according to social media
