I feel extremely lucky to have connected with so many talented creatives over the years, and in my new season of motherhood I am beyond grateful to have befriended Kate Ignatowski. I came across her work after we had relocated from New York City and were in a bit of a scramble to secure a newborn photographer (see Faire's baby pics here). Ironically, she had also recently relocated back to Richmond from NYC, and was preparing to welcome a baby girl shortly after Faire was born. It's been so fun to share in this stage of life with Kate both as fellow mamas and small business owners in the creative industry.

Here are a few favorite pics from our shoot last month at the Carillon in Byrd Park. Only Kate can make wrangling a wiggly, speed-crawling 8 month old look sweet and effortless!
