Ask and you shall receive, and receive I did! On facebook I asked for nominations for a well deserving mom to win a free mommy & me session. Within the day I had 43 nominations. They were all so deserving, some that even had me all choked up. The decision wasn't easy but ultimately the session went to Jessica Schriber, who I received 9 nominations for. She had boy/girl twins prematurely in late 2016. Since then she and her husband have made countless trips between home and the hospital juggling 4 children. Two in school, an infant at home and for several months an infant in the NICU 2 hours away. Finally they are all under one roof and I was so excited to finally get to meet them this week!!
I understand what it's like to never be in front of the camera, whether it be by choice or not. Your kid(s) love you, with or without makeup, or your hair done, before your next diet, just the way you are because this is the way they will remember you. I recently had a customer come in, she had made a photo book for her in laws 40th anniversary and she told me that her kids couldn't ever do something like that because she hates having her picture taken. How sad! You will never get these days with your kids back, so please, swallow your pride and take the time to take pictures with your kids! I promise you'll never regret it!
