See Mums Glam up to Celebrate Motherhood and Help Fight Post Natal Depression
Bex Lipp, mother of two young boys and owner of daisybaby.co.nz, wanted to find a way to make mothers feel good about themselves. She came up with the idea of celebrating the beauty of mothers in a calendar, and ran a competition for 12 lucky mothers to have a makeover and photoshoot, styled as 1950s housewives.
“The sacrifices we make as mothers are HUGE! We often focus on the needs of our children whom we love unconditionally and forget that we have needs also. We are women first, we need to see the beauty we may have forgotten, to remember we are gorgeous and amazing!”
Five dollars from the sale of each calendar will be donated to Mothers Matter – a charity working to improve awareness and understanding of postnatal depression (PND) and related mental illnesses in pregnancy and after childbirth. http://www.mothersmatter.co.nz/default.asp
Bret Lucas, Canon on Photographer of the year 2009, is donating his time and considerable talent to photograph the 12 winners at Fstop Studios. http://www.fstopstudios.co.nz/
