Happy Mother’s Day Weekend from NAPCP!
With Mother’s Day this weekend, NAPCP feels it is imperative to celebrate all the moms and mother-like figures in our lives. This year, we want to emphasize to our membership and readership how important it is, as mothers, to get out from BEHIND the camera, and get IN the frame. As busy moms, we often feel harried, exhausted … just plain not camera worthy. Someday, our children are going to want these images; they won’t remember that we need our roots done, or that we were on our sixth cup of coffee that day — they’ll remember how we made them feel. With this reminder, enjoy these images submitted by our member base, in recognition of motherhood.
