2018 was a year of growth, both personally and for my business. We brought one of our children home from public school and I’m re-learning how to balance my business, while also having a little one working alongside me. In the spring, I expanded in a few different directions. I began teaching Food as Art, […]
Why are breastfeeding images important? Motherhood sessions are special for so many reasons. The connection between mother and child that’s built from this intimate time together translates beautifully in photographs. These sessions are some of my very favorites.
