... and now I'm a dad! Just like that. So....
We are relaunching the 38 Mothers Project as there has been so much interest.
The exciting 38 Mothers Project took a 4-6 week pause, giving my wife and I time to welcome our first child, a baby boy we named Alexander. He was born on my birthday (yay!) and still gets called Roo quite a lot too.
Having had over a month now to get familiar with our little guy's needs and routines, it's time to reopen the 38 Mothers Project:
I'm searching for 38 Mothers, each with their own story.
To celebrate the birth of our first baby boy, in my 38th year, I am photographing 38 Mothers to bring to light the wonders and challenges of motherhood, to celebrate them and their unique journey.
There are still places available so click the "Find out more" button below for more information about the project.
About the 38 Mothers Project
For the project I'm choosing 38 mothers to have an opportunity to celebrate their journey, take a little time for themselves, to exist in beautiful photographs, and share their story. In doing so they can inspire others to see that they too are valued, loved and they are beautiful just the way they are. At least 10 places will be reserved for grandmothers who have stories of their own, another layer of motherhood.
Each lady will be pampered with professional hair and makeup, some bubbles and a photoshoot with me and my team in our Kingscliff Photography studio ... all free of charge. You will also receive an 8x10" matted print of your favourite image with the option to purchase more (absolutely no obligation). I want to celebrate you and your life journey to this point. Join me and help me to tell your story, which may inspire others to see they are not alone and are worth it.
Follow this link to an online questionnaire that will ask you questions about yourself, be as honest and as thorough as you can. Submissions will be accepted until 31st October 2017. You will be contacted to have a chat with me and to organise your session if you are one of the lucky 38.
I am so excited to relaunch this project. You can nominate yourself or a friend/mother/sister/aunt. Feel free to share this post with your networks.
I look forward to hearing from you.
