Mother’s Day is May 8th, 2016.
Let’s do something special for each other, yes?
I have 1000’s of photos of my kids. Literally. The walls are full, I have albums all over, and I could sit for hours looking at their beautiful faces. But you know what?
There are only a handful of photos with me IN them.
Us moms avoid being in photos because it’s either
a bad hair day,
a bad chin day,
a wrong pants day,
a shirt you’ve worn 3 times day,
or any number of reasonable and plausible excuses.
You know this momma.
Maybe you’ve been this momma.
Someone help this momma and nominate her for this gift!
My gift is simple – you take ONE MINUTE to CLICK THIS LINK for a super easy quick form, and tell me about a mom you adore. Perhaps I’ll give her the gift that will last FAR longer than iPhone photos and snapshots. And if I pick her, you get the same gift. Why? Taking these photos make me happy.
But I need your help.
No strings, no gimmicks, no fine print.
Just our gift.
To a very special momma. And the one(s) she mothers.
Who is she? She’s married, singled, partnered, it’s complicated’d, mom of one or mom of many. She’s blue, purple, young or old…. you define MOM & FAMILY how you want. I just ask that the child(ren) are humans.
The Fine Print: Not here. No strings. Please note this is NOT a sob-story contest. Regular moms have as much chance as “winning” as the six time cancer survivor who trains elephants in her spare time. I will not publicly share personal stories of strength, hardship, triumphs, walking on glass or tales of tenacity without permission. So you can get a little personal, if needed. Please be in the local Minneapolis, MN area, and be able to commit to a shoot date done by end of summer. A short & honey-sweet “Day in the Life” lifestyle session with a few pretty portraits will be filmed, and the family will receive a special collection of prints & digital files. It’s a charming and casual fun way to capture everyday life. No additional purchase will be expected from anyone. And yes, the person who nominates the winner gets the same gift. This is my GIFT from my heart. Winners will be announced after 1pm CST on my Facebook & Instagram on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 8th, 2016. (and contacted via email) Deadline for submissions via THIS LINK is by midnight 5/07/16. Go ahead and share this with others, I may easily be persuaded into declaring more than one mom the “winner.”
Thank you for helping me say “You are important, and belong in the picture” to someone special. You’re pretty awesome, yourself.
Happy Mother’s Day.
Best, Tracie Bea
