I've been trying like crazy to come up with something cool to do for moms this year and the more I try the more I keep coming back to what I'd want. I'm asked by folks ALL the time why I don't put myself in more pictures with my family… Why I don't get someone to shoot photos of me for a change.
For one thing, I'm really not that comfortable in front of the camera. BUT, mostly, because I just don't ever think to hire another photographer to do it. OR spend the time it takes to plan it. I mean who am I kidding? I didn't even send out Christmas cards this year!
After talking to my friends and other photographers, I realized I'm not the ONLY mom to be that way. Apparently, there are tons of us out there….the missing link in all of our family photographs. I would like to change that.
So, IN HONOR OF MOTHER'S DAY….
I will be donating my time and talent each month to ONE lucky mom. The trick is they have to be nominated. However, they CAN nominate themselves!
Simply, send me a short letter explaining why you/someone you know deserves to have some photos taken. What makes her/you so special or deserving of a FREE session with me?
Is she the kind of person that is constantly worrying about everyone else instead of thinking of herself? Is she having a milestone birthday? Is she a SUPER mom who can do anything? Be sure to include her contact information so I can reach her if she is chosen for the FREE session. Then watch and wait.
I'll announce the first winner on April 15th!
