Celebrating Motherhood

Post your own Mother’s Day Happy Capture for the chance to win a selfie stick!


We know as well as anybody (maybe more-so, given how much time we spend behind the lens) how easy it is to have a fantastic collection of photographs of your partner and children, but very few of yourself. It’s so important to exist in those photographs, in fact this year I’ve made it one of my personal goals to be photographed more – I want to be part of the memories! Last year Abigail started a Mother’s Day selfie campaign to #existinphotographsforyourchildren and this year we’re rekindling that same sentiment.




It’s Mothers Day this Sunday, 15th March, and we’d love you to share your Mothers Day selfie with us! You can post it on Instagram, Twitter or to our Facebook wall – tag us in the image and mark it with #mothersdayselfie2015, then don’t forget to nominate at least two friends to take part too . We’ll choose our favourite image and post it on this blog next week – and the image that makes us smile the most will receive a selfie stick! We’re not looking for technical perfection, and you can be as creative or as simple as you like, and use your phone, compact camera, DSLR or anything else that takes your fancy… as long as you and your children exist in the photograph!
