Before I announce the winners, I want to thank everyone who took time out to send in an application! I really appreciate all of the thoughtful and heartfelt responses. It's more than I could have ever hoped for.
I really hope this type of documentary session can help empower moms and help raise confidence levels. Each family is unique and quirky... and that's not a bad thing. That's a good thing. I want these pictures to be able to show off the crazy, show off the madness, show off the loveliness, and show off the essence of your family.
So often, with social media, only the best pictures are shown. Sometimes the worst pictures- but rarely anything in-between. There's so much that you do on a daily basis, and it's important too. You are important too. Moms tend to always put themselves at the end of the list, or they feel guilt for things they should've done or things they wanted to do but ran out of time, energy, money, etc. Moms work from sun up until sun down, and are on call all night long!! Sometimes we deserve a little recognition and a little pat on the back!
What started off as a simple "project 10" has turned into The Mom Movement, which is so much more. I hope that you all follow along with the project and get a glimpse of life in other families, in other homes. I hope you also consider having your own documentary session- [whether you have me take the pictures, or a different family documentary photographer]. I think you deserve this! You deserve to get in front of the camera! You deserve to showcase your real life. Falls, spills, cries, laughs, messes, mud, sadness, happiness, hugs, everything. Time goes by so fast.
