MOMMY SHOTS CELEBRATEs WOMEN'S DAY WITH EQUALITY OF PARENTING
Why do women have to choose between a career and a baby? Why do fathers have to be away at work and miss all the baby's first moments? This women's day, we pay tribute to the rising sensibility of responsibilities that should be willingly shared between partners. We should be celebrating equality of parenting.
There have always been publicised stories about celebrities, business tycoons and other women in the media, going back to work months after having a baby and doing a fabulous job of it. The common woman (and man for that matter) though have been conditioned to believe that a woman's career has to take a backseat to the responsibility of bringing up a child.
Who said so? Mommy Shots says no!
No, it does not take being a celebrity with an army of stylists, trainers, personal assistants and nannies to balance work and baby. All it takes is a supportive partner, confidence and a strong sense of self. This makes for confident moms and dads who set an example of gender equality for their children and other young couples.
Mommy shots primarily focuses on Maternity, Newborn, Toddler and Family photography but this time around, we bring you a series of photographs showcasing young Mums and mums-to-be who have managed to break almost every parenting and motherhood stereotype in different fields of work with their equal halves.
While we choose to celebrate the working mommy, we have to applaud the man behind and beside her, the one helping bring equality into the picture!
We’ve observed today's dads who take great pride in their partner's professional success and strongly believe that they are better nappy changers than the mommies! Honestly, how perfectly adorable is it to come home after a crazy day at work to find that daddy has cooked dinner, fed and changed the baby and is waiting with a glass of wine? Or the one who stays at home with the baby so mom can conquer the workspace! These hands on fathers make our hearts melt and are a big reason that we can celebrate a day dedicated to women.
Mommy shots celebrates Mums who have continued being themselves, career, passion and all, through pregnancy and after the baby and the men who stand by them, adoring them to the moon and back. We need more of them in our world!
To co-pregnant-ing and co-parenting in 2015. Happy women's day!
