Thank you for your interest in submitting your work and story that celebrates the art of being a mother. At Fount, we are committed to iconic imagery, words that dig beneath the surface, and the community that rises up when both these elements work in tandem. Below you will find an overview of what we look for in our featured content. Please review each of the following submission details carefully before sending us your work.

We look to feature portrait sessions that celebrate the art and wonder of motherhood. These sessions may include celebrating pregnancy, welcoming a new baby, or family portrait images that specifically highlight motherhood.

We believe mothers add an untouchable element of warmth to our everyday. We look to feature special family recipes, unique lifestyle tutorials, and inspiration for intentionally cultivating meaningful homes and spaces.

We look to feature powerful stories of adoption, fertility triumphs, and the vulnerable honesty that lies in the waiting. We are looking for features that provide mothers with a deep well of hope and healing in the midst of quiet struggle; and a call to celebration against all odds.

We want mothers, and those waiting to be, to know that they are not alone. We want to give this fierce love and devotion that we call motherhood a deeper and more meaningful voice on Fount. Will you be a part of it?

2. Images should be sized at least 1000 pixels wide, and each image titled “Business Name_01”, etc.
3. Upload your images to a dropbox folder for us to preview. Create a share link to your folder to provide in your submission form. (We will not join shared folders, nor accept any other gallery platform. A copy pasted url from your browser window will not work.)
4. Gather additional credits for your submission form:
• Are there any vendors to credit for this submission? This includes hair & makeup artists, venues, film labs, stylists, etc. Please have their Website & Instagram information ready to provide. It is the photographer's responsibility to provide this information for the feature.

5. Consider your written content:
• In the same way that we are looking to feature powerfully moving images, we are equally looking to include compelling written content. We believe that elements of words and story can add great depth and meaning to a feature that our readers will relate to. Every submission will ask for not only the technical and creative contributions of the shoot, but also the story behind it.
• This may include the vision of the artist, a personal reflection of the individuals in the shoot, a collaboration between photographer and author, etc. We are now asking for a basic submission description, and further written details will be requested upon possible acceptance.
