One teenage girl totally nailed a costume portraying a "tired mother" to Halloween.
Jillian Schnerch, 13, created the look with the help of her mother, Lindsay Hartsock. Photos of Jillian in costume have won over 65,000 actions on the family photography page, The Hartsocks & Photography.

"We have nine children and a busy photography business," Hartsock of Rio Rancho, New Mexico told Good Morning America in a statement. "Jillian sees me trying to run our big, active family as well as our profession. (Jillian) it helps a lot for her to know exactly what it is like to be a tired mother and sister and thought it would be a perfect fantasy for her."

Jillian, who is the fourth oldest, helps take care of her younger siblings. When she decided on her tired mother, the Halloween costume, Hartsock took her to buy supplies.
Jillian shook a messy bun, dark circles under her eyes, and Starbucks coffee. She also held a doll and had a child hanging on her leg.
"I told her to smile at one (picture) and she said 'I'm happy, but I'm a tired mom, so I have to keep that look so as not to break the character,' said Hartsock. "I think that's what it comes down to, being a mom is a lot of work, but there are those little rewarding moments during the day that make it all worthwhile."
