As I drove out of the parking lot, I could hear her crying. Tears filled my eyes. A golf ball sized gulp formed in my throat. My knuckles turning white as I pointed my car towards home. The last time I felt this way we were driving away from Children’s Hospital, leaving Willa behind at […]

When your big sister is over-the-moon about your arrival, you know you’re off to a great start in this world.

I recently had the opportunity to do a lifestyle photography session with the locally owned and founded organic baby food company, Little Foodies. If you live in the Boulder area and you’re raising your little ones “organically”, you MUST check out Little Foodies! I can attest that their baby food doesn’t taste anything like “baby food”. I […]
