Welcome to the most perfect imperfect in-home session there ever was. My artistic, film-loving heart skips a beat a little every time I view these images. I’m a sucker for some gritty black and white images in real-life scenarios, and this sweet morning motherhood session with Lauren and Virginia gave me plenty to gush over! […]
