The morning of our session, we went downstairs for breakfast before heading out to our shoot & my friend Kate sent me a text. She said, "Have you seen the weather?" ...

I've been asked so many times, "What are Isla's colors?" I never knew babies needed colors. Haha! This is all new to me people! Lol! I come to find out that it basically means, what type of colors are going into her nursery or what color most of her items will be. I love all … Continue reading Baby Cupcake | Isla’s “Mood Board”
