Italian photographer Marta Giaccone relocated to Wales to get her master's in documentary photography. The weather was stifling, which made it hard for her to be creative. But then she noticed teenagers walking in the park with their babies and became captivated by how much responsibility they had at such a young age, she told Feature Shoot.
At first, the teen moms she approached were skeptical about being photographed. But Giaccone established relationships with a few women who eventually allowed her to take pictures of them with their children.
