Calling all moms!
eran jayne photography and the Good Mother Project are looking for mothers of all backgrounds, ages, ethnicities, shapes and sizes for a very special photography project called Motherhood: Unfiltered.
In an age where social media and technology provide us with constant opportunities to take and retake photos, add filters, edit flaws and present an often unrealistic image of ourselves and our lives as mothers, we are hoping to create a series of real-life motherhood moments – without the filters, without the edits, but with all the beauty.
At the Good Mother Project and eran jayne photography, we believe that all mothers are beautiful and that there is beauty in each and every motherhood moment. That’s what we’re hoping to capture in these documentary-style, black & white portrait sessions.
We’re looking for a wide range of mothers to photograph this summer, including, but not limited to:
- brand new mothers
- breast-feeding or bottle-feeding mothers
- adoptive mothers
- mothers of children with special needs
- elderly mothers & their grown children/grandchildren
- mothers of all ethnic backgrounds
- mothers with mental or physical illnesses
- mothers of only children
- mothers of many children
- mothers of teenagers
- mothers of angel babies
- pregnant mothers
- single mothers
- mothers who parent in a unique or different way
- working mothers
- stay-at-home mothers
- mothers who have faced discrimination
- mothers with secondary caregivers
- same-sex mothers
- any mother with a unique and/or beautiful motherhood story to tell
