Photographer Calls out “Mommy Shaming” Culture with Adorable Portraits

While raising her kids, photographer Abbie Fox has heard lots of opinions from other people about the way she should handle her responsibilities as a mother.  During that process, Fox learned that people often judge mothers and that society sometimes expects too much from them.

This was when she decided to stand up against these “mommy shamers” through a series of compelling photographs. The series contains adorable portraits of kids holding various signs which hold confessions about their mother’s practices but also provide a powerful message that it’s ok to have different raising methods.

“I like to think of myself as a mom activist,” said Abbie. “I hate the crap we get sometimes. I hate that we get verbally abused for our choices even when we are making the best decision for our family.”
