It was such a pleasure to serve other mommas for this Mother’s Day! For one day, I hosted moms in the studio, where they chose a dress to wear and then were photographed with their little ones. Forte Florals designed the floral arrangement and, my oh my, was it perfect!

I first met Fin for his first birthday photos a couple years ago. Now he’s three and it’s just so exciting! This little guy couldn’t quite pick one theme for his birthday, so last I heard there were at least three themes. Fitting, I guess 🙂
