Happy Mothers Day!
As everyone is getting ready to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, we wanted to do a special post to celebrate so many of our very own members that live and breathe motherhood each and every day. As photographers, our members spend a lot of time BEHIND the camera, capturing fleeting moments between mother and child. They tell stories through the lens of the camera, and remind all the beautiful women out there that they need to be IN the pictures with their children. To support this message, we wanted to show all of our readers that we truly believe in being present for these moments captured. So, please enjoy these treasured images submitted by our members, celebrating their own motherhood.

napcp contributor meet Kristen Smith
About the Contributor: Kristen Smith is a graphic designer and illustrator residing in Augusta, GA with her fiance Jon-Michael and two fur babies, Desmond and Penelope. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to do something creative and began taking design classes in high school. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia, she worked hard to establish a freelance career and officially launched her own company in 2011. Kristen is an award-winning designer, a celebrated creative for Minted.com, and has been working with NAPCP since it's inception in 2009. She has a passion for fresh and beautiful designs with subtle feminine hints and a dash of whimsy. Her passion for design is rivaled only by her passion for animals. She has been an avid animal rights supporter for many years and presently works with a local rescue organization fostering and rehabilitating cats. When she is not designing or sketching, you can find her crafting or in the garden! She is also an entertainment junkie and watches entirely too many movies and television shows. Kristen looks forward to the extraordinary possibilities each new day brings!
