After rescheduling because of rain last month, we were determined not to let the rain stop us this time. But my goodness, it was cold! Little Teagan was so adorable and was such a trooper despite the sprinkles and chilly weather. We lasted about 20 minutes! So expect to see more of this little cutie soon when we finish her session next month!

I made a promise to myself that I would take on more personal projects and shoot what I love more this year. Nothing warms my heart more than loving images of moms with their children. So often, we are the ones that are stuck behind the camera. I know that I personally have 100s of images of my husband with the kids, but it wasn’t until my friend and fellow photographer Raye Law came to visit last fall that I actually had beautiful images of myself with my children. They are something I will treasure for always.
So, I decided in honor of Mother’s Day to hold a limited mini session event just for mothers and their children. I can not wait to capture real, meaningful images that these moms will have forever. The idea came to me months ago when I read a very moving blog post by Deb Schwedhelm that you can read here . I ask you to take a moment to read what she wrote about waiting for the “perfect time” for photographs. There really is no perfect time. Life goes by in a blink and we just never know what tomorrow will bring…
THE EVENT DETAILS
And now for the best part… the giveaway. I am so thrilled to be giving away a mini session gift certificate for one deserving mom. All of us who are mothers know what a difficult job it can be. Rewarding? Of course. The greatest gift? Most definitely. But if we are being honest, we all know how hard it is. I know there are mothers out there who are struggling for whatever reason, but are AMAZING moms. So, my blog readers… this is your chance to nominate that deserving mom to win this special Mommy & Me mini session. I have made it so easy for you! All you have to do is fill out this form about your nominee. Tell me what you think makes this mom special and why she deserves this giveaway. All of this is confidential – just between you and me. I will carefully read through them all and contact the winning mom privately. This special mom will win a complimentary Mommy & Me mini session and the entire gallery of high resolution images on CD. All I ask is that she allow me to share her images here on my blog.
Please take just a few moments to tell me about that special mom you know here. Mention this giveaway to your friends too! They may know of someone they would like to nominate. All entries must be received by April 30th.
