Back in March, I issued a challenge. Instead of taking photos of your kids, I encouraged mothers everywhere to get in the picture. I was amazed at the emails and comments I got from moms who, too, admitted they're guilty of waiting until they "showered" or "weren't so heavy" or "had makeup on." Let's be honest, will we ever look exactly the way we want?
Don't make that mistake.
Kids don't care how you look. They just want to look back one day and have a memory of their childhood -- with mom in it. The emails I've gotten from those who've lost a parent and wish they had more photos... or even just those who say it goes by too fast and don't have anything to look back on. If you haven't sent me a picture of you and your children -- or you and your mom -- it's not too late. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy these great shots. And thanks to all who participated!
Tomorrow: Read the inspiration for our new blog and the photo shoot that opened my eyes. And later this week: the ups, downs and emotional conflict that is Mother's Day.
