Mother’s give us the best gift possible. The gift of Life! In honor of this I am giving away one portrait session to one lucky “mother”. Since this contest is as a thank you to all the mother’s out there you cannot nominate yourself. Tell me who you are nominating (your mom/sister/auntie/grandmother/mother-in law/friend ) and explain why she is an awesome mother or mother figure. Stories are encouraged! Tell me here
The winner will receive an hour portrait session with a $50 print credit.
My mom is awesome! When I was little we would spend our summer’s in Mexico. I am the oldest of 4 siblings and we were all about 2 years apart. Each summer my mom would pack us up and we would fly into Guadalajara then take a LOOOOONG bus ride into a small town in the state of Guanajuato for summer with my grandparents. My dad would stay behind and work so it was just her with us. Thinking back on this adventure I am amazed at how she managed not to lose us nor our luggage. Those summer trips were so much fun!! Today my mom had expanded her travel to other parts of the world and I’m always amazed at her energy. My dad used to say .. “Everyone is getting older except your mother. She is getting younger. ” This is true! As a matter of fact- She just got back from a trip to Europe and her suitcase was just as heavy if not heavier as I remember those suitcases from my childhood.
here she is during a trip I took with her last November to Punta del Este, Uruguay.
