motherhood IRL photo contest

CafeMom is so excited to announce the winners in our Motherhood IRL Photo Contest. Thank you to all the parents who shared their beautiful photos celebrating real-life motherhood. There were so many good ones, and two of our entrants scored the $200 prizes -- one, a People's Choice winner, and the other, an Editor's Choice winner.


And the Motherhood IRL Photo Contest winners are ... 

People's Choice Winner: Heather Savka

The caption on Heather's sweet photo read: "My 3-year-old daughter has dwarfism; however, it doesn't stop her from doing what she wants to do. Two minutes before this photo was taken she was screaming because I was scared to let her climb this. I gave in and she shocked me with her determination and perseverance. So proud of this girl! Motherhood to me is being the spotter for your child even if it scares the heck out of you."

Her photo received 408 combined votes and Facebook likes. 

Editor's Choice Winner: Tina Reynolds

The caption on Tina's hilarious photo read: "That moment when you realize it's way too quiet ..." Ack! We can certainly relate. 

Our panel of judges selected her photo based on originality, personality, creativity, clarity of expression, and how well it embodied CafeMom. 

A big thank-you to everyone who participated in our photo contest. We love our community and the stories and truths you shared about your own personal motherhoods.
