“Emma is a preemie, so she’s a little smaller than a typical one year old, but she’s super happy and easy to photograph.” Audrey, Emma’s mom, had messaged me prior to her smash cake portrait session. Preemies had been on my mind and my heart a lot lately. A friend from church had just survived her […]
