Big news for Mother’s Day! The warm-hearted holiday is around the corner. I am SO excited. I mean, it’s not every day that you’re celebrated for finding the favorite hippopotamus water bottle (feared lost at the zoo), buying light-up shoes that are just as comfortable as they are cute, and making your signature seven-layer quesadillas for lunch every. single. day. For some, becoming a mom might mean going from mimosas and makeup, to busting a move in the kitchen to Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. Still, there’s no denying that on many days – whatever your circumstances – motherhood makes you feel like you’re walking in the clouds.
Some of my favorite images are the photos I am in with my son, Nolan, or with my own mom. Whether these pictures are selfies or professionally captured, I cherish each and every one of them. My mother passed away shortly after my wedding day, and there’s nothing I treasure more than the images and video from that day!
Mary Bea Photography Giveaway
To celebrate Mother’s Day, I am joining with two other San Jose businesses for an exciting giveaway over on Instagram! One very lucky woman will score a session with myself to capture mom-and-kids or grandma-and-grandkids, a relaxation massage from Serenity Massage by Leslie, and a 6-month place space membership to Campbell Coffee House. Leslie is a Willow Glen massage therapist, loved by all her clients. Campbell Coffee House is a delightful local business, as well! At Campbell Coffee House, the kids can play and explore while mom works within view or relaxes with a cuppa and her favorite avocado toast or pastry. Yes!
For your chance to win, visit me on Instagram on May 1st, and follow the instructions for the giveaway. Local entrants only, please. Or, you may enter on behalf of a special local mother in your life. The winner will be selected on May 12th. Good luck!
Cheers to you, mamas!
