I take a lot of pleasure out of both photographing moms and their children as I do with GIFTING sessions. In celebration of this year’s Mother’s Day and in addition to the Mommy & Me session I gifted last weekend, this one involves you, the reader, for your input. Read on because there is a treat for you for your thoughtfulness.
Somewhere, there is a mom-to-be embracing her growing belly and envisioning dreams for the child that will soon arrive and bless her with the most amazing journey a woman can ever experience.
Do you know her? Maybe she’s your best friend or your sister and has been by your side through your own pregnancy. Maybe she was your birthing coach or your baby shower planner. She’s full of life herself, just like you were, in the midst of choosing nursery colours, reading a well loved and borrowed “What’s to Expect When You’re Expecting” book and going over baby names. She’s been asking your advice on morning sickness, swollen legs, fatigue and back pain. She trusts you because you’ve “been there, done that” already.
This mom-to-be is so very near and dear to your heart and I can imagine how much you want to do something over-the-top for her and the baby she is carrying. Soon she will announce that she has given birth to the most beautiful baby she has ever seen. She will tell you how she cannot imagine her life without her child and you will smile and nod and your own heart will be full of joy for her. You will tell her to enjoy these moments and how fast they go by. And you’ll, no doubt, share with her that professional portraits are absolutely priceless. And that you know the go-to-girl in town! (uh, that would be me, of course *big smile*)
Here’s how you can join alongside Kit Kat Photography in gifting one special mom-to-be with this fabulous gift.
Share your story in the comments section below about you and your friend. Share some history, some laughs, some tidbits of stories of times and memories you have shared when you were expecting, and when your child(ren) was born and how your friendship has grown since you found out she is joining you in this amazing motherhood experience. Please include her first name with relationship to you (sister or friend) and her due date in your comment.
One mom-to-be, who is expecting her first baby, will be receiving (in a way, from you and me) a First Year of Memories Package that includes a selection of digital images and prints from a maternity session, a newborn session, a 6-month session and the milestone first birthday session.
Total value of this gift is over $500.00
In thanks for the part you play in her life and her soon to arrive baby’s life (whether that’s next month or 7 months from now) you’ll receive a $50 gift voucher towards any regularly priced family session this summer.
Stories will be accepted until end of day Monday May 22nd (Victoria Day) and a mom-to-be will be notified shortly thereafter. Upon acceptance of this wonderful gift, I’ll let you all know who the lucky lady is.
May you all hug your children a little tighter today and embrace the recognition that this special day gives you. Know that every drop of blood, sweat and tears is worth it and that your efforts in raising happy, healthy children are a worthy and valuable investment in the future.
