Happy Birthday To Ya...
It was just one year ago that my good friend and co-founder of this site Adrienne and I hit "publish" on our very first blog posts. Full of hope and enthusiasm and a little trepidation. We had no expectations, only dreams for where this burgeoning community would take us.
To be here, one year later with a thriving community of unbelievable people all over the world is humbling. There are not words to describe the gratitude that we feel towards each and everyone of you. Every blog comment, facebook post, and message board thread confirms what we believed to be true when we set out on this journey, which is that there is a community of moms (and dads) out there who want to tell their story. Who want to share that story, and who want to help their fellow moms do the same. You are cheerleaders, and inspirations to one another, and I am proud to be a part of it all.
I asked you to send me your personal best images for 2010, and they came pouring in! It was special for me, because I have watched most of your grow from your first post and the progress is jaw dropping. So here's to you Momtographers! Thank You, for making this community a place that I am proud to call home.
The Many Faces of Fall
Autumn, Fall, or whatever you call it---the season is upon us. For some that means crisp air and changing leaves, for others it's sending your baby of to school for the first time, it may be the start of a new life chapter like high school or college. My west coast mama's are trading in their bikinis for sweaters on their afternoon beach strolls, and my friends to the North well I have already seen the down jackets, fuzzy hats, and gloves. Yes, of course fall just wouldn't be fall without the pumpkin patches, apple picking, and ghoulish Halloween costumes, but it's also everything in between. Fall has as many faces as the New York City halloween parade has costumes, and I wanted to celebrate them all!
I hope that you are inspired, and reminded that you are a MOMTOGRAPHER, which means you report to no one.So use your creative license Momtographers, learn the rules and then break them, paint your families in ways as unique as they are! Snap to it!
Thank you to all of our momtographers, poptographers and everything in between, who took the time to share! Enjoy our fall gallery, courtesy of YOU!
