Mother-daughter

I know I speak on behalf of both my sisters when I say that we feel so lucky to have the mama that we have (that actually sounds like the biggest understatement ever, but how does one even begin to describe the amazingness of their mom?!). For this past Mother’s Day, my sister, Sophia, suggested we get Mother-Daughter photos done, and this couldn’t have been more of a blast! She sourced the incredibly talented and fun photographer, Nicole Ashley, who brings with her a team of equally cool, fun and talented ladies to pamper and make you look extra fabulous for the shoot.

Although Mother’s Day was in May, we decided to schedule this photo shoot for July when my little sister, Eleni, was visiting from Dubai (side story – Eleni made the move aaaaall the way out there earlier in the spring, so the adjustment of having the baby of the family living so far away made these photos that much more special). Another fun/special fact was that I, myself, was right in the middle of my own mama-to-be journey, so it was pretty cool to document us plus the soon-to-be addition (only a few weeks away now!!). Here are a few images from the shoot, which at the end of it all, Nicole, Jana and Stefanie endearingly nicknamed us the Kardashians – ha!

Notice the hair blowing in the "wind"? Super glamorous, and super fun...Nicole and her girls actually brought out blow dryers to create this hilariously fun effect.
