Thank you, Momma!!! Enter to win a big Mother’s Day Giveaway! (over $800 in prizes!!!)


POSTED IN: Contests

Hard work, lots of sweat, tears, and tons of sleep sacrificed… all in the name of being a momma! So much work goes into what you do and I think that may be why aside from weddings… kiddos are my favorite to photograph… I think it’s because they grow and change so fast and for me as a momma I want to hang on to ever smile, word, and snuggle! I want to snatch them up so I can delight in them for years to come… I think the other reason I love capturing the cuteness of younger kiddos is because I also know that you need to relish in those precious, sweet and adorable moments because those moments give you fuel to push through the hours of screaming in the car… or the puke that you get to wear and then clean up… or the fuel to get you through the hardest hour of the day – that hour right before dinner. I have the feeling that as our kiddos get older the challenges don’t get easier – the challenges just change.

But what doesn’t change is your incredible love, patience, and investment into the lives of your children regardless of how old they are! I love all of your hard work and we want to say thank you for all that you do and celebrate all your every sacrifice with a wonderful giveaway! We have teamed up with awesome LOCAL businesses to give you one incredible giveaway! One Lucky Momma will receive a bundle of great prizes!

    I did it! 🙂 And oddly, MANY of the awesome businesses are ones that I have already liked- yay! I can’t think of a better job than being a mommy. It’s the hardest, most exhausting job that I’ve EVER had, but truly the most rewarding. I am beyond blessed that God has given us the responsiblity of raising two of his children. Amazing. 🙂
