THE BRONX - One Bronx mom is getting A-list treatment with her very own photo shoot.

Photographer Richard Rosario held a special Mother's Day contest this year and gave a free photo shoot to the winner. He says he wanted to honor mothers because they're often behind the camera, getting pictures of their kids, but rarely in front of it.

Alexandra Kyer, mom to a 3-year-old girl, turned out to be the ideal subject.

"All of my photos are of my daughter," Kyer said. "The last time I did this was for my wedding six years ago."

On Sunday, Rosario rolled out the red carpet for her, including hair, makeup, wardrobe changes and more to get the perfect shots.

Rosario says he plans on holding the contest again next Mother's Day so he and his team can help another woman feel fabulous.

"I love it," Kyer said. "I feel like a superstar."
