I’m so excited to announce that one of my summer maternity sessions from last year has been published in the inaugural issue of The Kindred Path, a fine art magazine that celebrates motherhood photography and artistry. This feature is particularly special as it captures a moment of beauty and love for two very dear friends in a summer rose garden.
