Mother’s Day Giveaway!

Motherhood is beautiful, it is hard, it is sacrificial. Motherhood is everything—but rarely is it glamourous. At Jai Mayhew Photography we think it’s time to change that!

So this Mother’s Day, I’m doing something I’ve never done before, gifting a LUXURY PORTRAIT SESSION to one lucky mama!

Together with incredible stylist Heather Biernbaum, we’re giving every mama out there the chance to win a $1200 gift voucher towards a luxury portrait session.  You will enjoy a 4 hour shoot, styling by Heather (your personal glam squad for the day!), fully directed posing, gourmet goodies to nibble on and a private reveal session.

OMG! Yes, let’s do this. How do I enter?

To enter the contest you’ll need to get on your social media, find our Instagram accounts (@jaimayhew & @b_beautiful_mua) and do the following:

  1. FOLLOW both accounts.

  2. LIKE the post and COMMENT why you would like to win.

  3. TAG another deserving mom who would love to win the shoot.

  4. SHARE the post on your feed or story. 

  5. Be sure to tag Jai and Heather so we see your entry!

You MUST do all 5 things for entry to count!

You will have one week to enter and you can enter once a day.


What’s the catch?

There is no catch. You will be pampered, given fully guided posing, have access to the studio’s wardrobe and coached on what to bring. You will also be invited back to the studio for a private viewing of your best images (all given Jai’s signature retouch) to choose your favorite portraits. At the end of the week, we will choose 4 finalists and schedule consultations with each for the following week. One of those finalists will will the $1200 gift voucher, the other 3 will receive a $275 gift voucher towards a package of their choice should they decide to book their own shoots. Take a look at Jai’s before and afters to get an idea of what your own transformation might look like!

Hello beautiful, I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Jai Mayhew and I’m a published fashion & portrait photographer.  I’m also a wife, a mom (so trust me when I say that I want to CELEBRATE another mama this Mother’s Day!) and a martini lover. I am so excited to be offering this session contest and hope to meet you in my studio very soon!


Heather has been a hair and makeup artist in the St. Louis area for the past four years. I started working with her 2 years ago and have been wowed again and again at her insane skills and her wicked sense of humor. Heather enhances the beauty of every woman who sits before her by helping women feel beautiful in their own skin. Heather has worked with me on shoots that range from portrait sessions to fashion editorials. This woman’s skills know no bounds.  She’s also a wife and the mom of two adorable little boys (so at your shoot we’ll all be exchanging mom stories!).
