Hey there, welcome


My neighbor and friend Kristina and her hubby Ricky are getting ready to welcome their third baby any day now!  Kristina was so kind to model these dresses for me the other night – doesn’t she look gorgeous?!

The glow of an expectant mother is only closely rivaled by the glow of the “golden hour sun.”  They are both magical in their own special way.  One glows with the promise and hope of new life, and the other with the hope and promise of a beautiful evening and the promise and hope of a new day to come.
