Call For Submissions – Mothers

Send me your photo & I might use it for my next series!

The past two years, I released a series of paintings for Mother’s Day, and both years they were a huge hit. You can see the collections here and here.

I will make a new series of original paintings for Mother’s Day next year. Would you like me to use your photo as inspiration? Email up to three (3) photos to with “Mother’s Day submission” in the subject.

The deadline for submissions is 5/30/2019.


I am interested in candid scenes of mothers living life with their families. I prefer a scene, like baking or tinkering, over posed shots…I want the images to tell a story. I prefer scenes that are zoomed out to show all/most of the subjects’ bodies. I have a particular love for representing LGBTQ families, blended families, and families with disabilities or who have overcome a hardship of some kind.

If you want to tell me the story behind your photos, it is welcome but not necessary.

While I am sure there are many great images of mothers and fathers together, I am specifically looking for separate scenes of motherood. I will do a new call for submissions next month for Father’s Day.

By submitting your photos to me, you are giving me permission to use and alter them however I see fit. I may use your photos in my promotion, on my site or social media or elsewhere.

Lastly, if you are a Patreon supporter, mention this when you send in your submissions.

Remember: the deadline for submissions is 5/30/2019.

Good luck!

If you like the words that I write or the art that I paint and you want me to create more, please buy something from my shop or support me on Patreon. Thank you.
