Rapid City mom wins Mother's Day photo contest

Lyndsey Akley submitted this contest-winning photo of a family photo shoot that didn't go as planned.

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - A photo shoot gone wrong was the perfect illustration of the imperfect nature of motherhood.

“Perfectly Imperfect” is the title of the winning KOTA TV Mother’s Day contest photo. It was submitted by Lyndsey Akley, a mother of two, in Rapid City.

“Trying to take a memory photo and this is the result. Real life motherhood,” Akley said.

Akley’s photo was the top vote-getter in the Mother’s Day contest. Her grand prize: A season pass for two to The Black Hills Playhouse, $50 gift card for Old MacDonald’s Petting Farm and a year’s supply of smoothies from the Tropical Smoothie Café.
