Wow. I knew selecting a contest winner could be tricky, but I wasn’t prepared for the entries that I received!!! 8 amazing moms were nominated. All are deserving. Here’s a list of the nominated amazing moms:
Each one has a unique story. Each one has a need for family pictures. Every story had a common thread: the moms are selfless, hard working women who are devoted to their family. they have few pictures of themselves either with their family as a whole or with the individuals within their family.
Ultimately, one fit my contest parameters (no newborns, use by 6/30, etc.) and the tugging at my heart, so may I now announce the winner!
the mom who ROCKS! and has won a custom family photography session with karenhalbert photography is…
Adrienne Fleming!!!!!!!!!!!! (pictured above with her littlest, along with pictures of her family ‘cribside’)
I had the opportunity to meet Adrienne a few months ago, when she was spending the majority of her waking hours with her sweet baby boy, Bennett, who was born very prematurely and spent the first 6 months of his life in the hospital. Adrienne’s journey to and through motherhood is an amazing one. You can read about her at her blog www.journey-to-parenthood.blogspot.com. Congratulations, Adrienne! I can’t wait to meet your entire family and see how much Bennett has grown. Have a very blessed Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms, young and old and those not quite there yet…we are a sisterhood, wearing our hearts outside of our bodies. May all of your children stop and take the time to tell you how much they love you, because you know they do!!!
