This time of year, people start talking about Valentines day. I’ve always had a problem with the forced gestures and commercial driven nature of the holiday. I do however, love that it reminds us to show those who are dear to us how much we care. With that spirit in mind, HMP is announcing the LOVE Photography project- to bring a little more love and light to the world this winter, with a twist. This project isn’t about our partners, it’s about our children, and our bottomless love for them.
Becoming a mother is life changing, and it’s a journey that really never ends. I love the complexity and depth of the mother-child connection. It’s kind of unexplainable, and so unique for each person. This winter, I want to celebrate that with the LOVE Photography Project. I want to capture the people who are least captured- mothers! And I want to capture them with their kids, having sweet moments that should be celebrated.
If you are a mom, or you know someone who is I want to capture you! Here’s the plan…
You fill out the questionnaire and tell me what mother love means to you. We’ll meet at a park, trail, or even your home. Each session will take 5-15 minutes, and will be just you and your little one(s) interacting and hanging out. I’ll be posting your quote along with a gorgeous image of you and your little one to celebrate YOU.
A few details:
-You should fill out the questionnaire linked here.
-You should be ok with your images and first name being shared online and social media, as well a potentially being printed.
-speak from your heart- take time to think about your special bond and what the love of your children means to you <3
-You will need to be available for these shoots on weekday mornings or afternoons.
-You will receive 2 digital images via download from an online gallery
-You must live in the local Penn Valley, Grass Valley, or Nevada City area
-Not everyone will be chosen to participate, due to the volume of applications
I hope to meet as many of you as I can in the coming weeks, and I look forward reading all about the sweet sweet love you have for your littles!!
