    Well, I think I should win because I’m the first to comment!! Just Kidding. I will be celebrating my 2nd Mothers Day, this year. My first born, son, was born May 4th 2011, just days before Mother’s Day. I was blessed with the most perfect little gift ever. Last Mother’s Day I had to take Kaleb back to the hospital to check his Bilirubin levels, as he was born with just a tad bit of jaundice. While waiting at the hospital, I was changing his diaper and he PEED on me. So I got peed on for the first time, on Mother’s Day. He has grown into such a mommy’s boy, and I love him with all of my heart. I would love to have some pictures of him and I together. <3 And, I also shared this contest on my facebook page 🙂ReplyCancel

    I would love to be considered for this prize. At 35 I got remarried after spending 13yrs alone…raising my first son. Both being from a big family we wanted kids together, but after 6yrs of trying we were told its not likely going to happen. But at 41 we got a little surprise with a pink x on the stick… I had to call my eldest son in Iraq and say “you know how you’ve been an only child forever, welllll guess what?”.
    And we have never looked back… Ayden James is now 3 1/5 and the love of our lives.. what a blessing even now almost 45 I can’t believe how lucky I am to have this little shinning star in my life. His brother adores him though 21 yrs his senior and Daddy and I though OLD LOL, Adore him too.ReplyCancel

    I’m actually entering for my daughter. This will be her very first Mother’s Day as we welcomed Christopher James into the world 8 months ago. Arianna’s husband arrived back in the states just 5 days before he was born. He had been deployed and it was a miracle that he got back in time!! We are thankful for the time they have had the past months together and they are blessed beyond measure to have CJ in their lives. 3 weeks ago he was deployed again and will definitely miss both her first Mother’s Day and probably his first Father’s Day. With him not here you can only imagine the changes that take place daily that he misses out on. I know that a photoshoot of the baby and Arianna would go so far in helping us document what is happening here and him having those pictures to look at would be worth more than words can say! Thank you for this opportunity to tell their story and the possibility to win this for them!!ReplyCancel

    I became a new mom as of February 12, 2012. Mother hood has taught me a lot in the last 2 months, one being to fully rely on God. When my son Levi was 4 days old he stopped breathing, turned complete blue, and went limp in my arms. We live 20 minutes from the main highway (29 North). so we called the rescue squad to meet us, seeing as they were about 40 minutes away from us. I began giving my 4 day old son rescue breaths on the way to meet the ambulance. People have called me a hero, but hero I am not, I am just a mom in love with her little boy doing what had to be done. I am so unbelievably grateful to be able to say that son is alive and well.. I hope I never take him for granted and I would love to have a photo session with him to celebrate the fact that he is still here with us, teaching me new and exciting things each and every day.

    I would love to win a photography session with my daughter! My husband & I are both from big families (I’m the 7th of 8 & he’s the 1st of 6) & have always wanted to have a big family of our own. In August 2007 we started trying to have a family & by the next year when nothing happened, we had fertility testing done & were told we had less than a 2% chance of getting pregnant (even with fertility medication)! We were devastated! We decided to give the meds a chance & prayed A LOT! Right before we were getting scheduled to have an Interuterine Insemination, we found out we were pregnant! In September 2009, Kylie Isabella was born. It was the most amazing experience! The overflow of love was like I’d never felt before! She’s our little miracle! She is such a joy in our lives! We tried for #2 and nothing happened in a year of trying (with fertility meds), so we may not be able to have any more children. We don’t know God’s plans, but we DO know that He has blessed us with the most amazing little girl ever! Please pick me! =) (I shared your link on FB.)ReplyCancel

    I think this photo session is just what i need to pick me up out of the darkness I have been in for the past several months. I have had a rough time. My Mother was diagnosed with a massive brain tumor. She came thru the surgery fine and is making a fast recovery but it really took a toll on me emotionally. I also deal with my own depression and panic disorder and have had a really rough time lately on a personal level. My son is special needs too and the stress from all of these things is very hard to deal with. I would love a photo session with my children to remind me that their is still so much to celebrate in my life. My mother is healing and God has blessed me with so much. Please consider me. This sounds like just the pick me up I need!ReplyCancel

    I would love to win this photo session! My mother has been hinting around that she would like a “professional” photo of her, my sister and I. And I would like a picture of myself, her and my kids done. I might be able to talk my 106 year old grandmother to come out and include her in a picture -you never know. =) Life is short enjoy the small moments. Oh, and I liked you on FB and shared your link.ReplyCancel

    I would love to win this contest for my family. I have been married to the love of my life and the father of our children for 25 years. His mother and father passed away before we had children. My mother passed away 13 years ago. My father chose to not be involved in my our my siblings families and we hardly ever took family portraits. Our daughters (ages 21 and 18) have never known what it is like to grow up with loving grandparents. This year (in August) our oldest will be a senior in college and our youngest will start her 1st year of college. It is so hard to get the family together for pictures. Having a photo session would mean so much to each one of us and especially to me for Mother’s Day.ReplyCancel
