Local photographer seeks ‘beautiful mothers’
As part of “Beauty Revived,” a photography movement, Megan Owen, a former resident of Lincoln who now resides in Williston, is asking for nominations for beautiful mothers in Vermont to be featured in a national magazine.
The beauty of these women will not be measured by their waist size or flare for fashion. Instead, these women will be chosen because of their inner beauty, their courage and their countenance. The winner will be given a free photo session with Megan Marie Photography (Owen’s two-year-old professional photography business) and a feature in the Mother’s Day issue of “Beauty Revived” the magazine.
Owen is a self-taught photographer who picked up the camera about five and a half years ago — just after her 6-year-old daughter Averie was born.
“She’s my muse and the reason I started photography,” Owen explained.
Owen was selected from hundreds of photographers who applied to be a part of the Beauty Revived 50 Beautiful Mothers campaign
“I heard about the 50 Beautiful Mothers Campaign from a fellow photographer and knew I had to get involved,” said Owen, who also works as gallery manager at PhotoPlace in Middlebury. “I am incredibly honored to have been chosen as one of the 50 photographers to highlight the beauty, grace and strength of what it means to be a woman.”
Owen is accepting nominations now through March 10. All nominations are welcome via Owen’s website meganmariephotographer.com then click on the “50 Beautiful Mothers Nomination Form” tab.
The mother chosen will be an example of real beauty and will have shown their beauty by their service when weary, grace in defeat and kindness when tried. Owen will donate a photography session to this mom and her story will be featured in the magazine.
“Beauty Revived” was started four ago as a way for photographers to use their lens for good and shine light on the real beauty that was happening in local communities. In the last year and a half, more than 800 women, girls and children have been featured on “Beauty Revived’s” website and magazine.
“Photography has given me a voice that I didn’t realize I had,” Owen explained. “I’ve learned that it’s not always about the photograph itself, but the emotions and healing that often take place through the process.”
“The photographers who participate in our campaigns not only have great technical and artistic talent, but also have big hearts and a desire to be more than just a picture taker,” Michelle Gifford, “Beauty Revived” founder, said. “They want to be photographers who change the world with their work.”
