  • Anel Lestage - You are so right Sarah! I have 4 kids and each one has been different, with different needs. I was at different stages of motherhood with each baby. Now that I have a newborn again, I am reminded to listen to my own mother instinct and not the “experts” I think it’s wonderful of you to share your personal experience with your Annapolis clients, not just as a photographer, but as a mother too.ReplyCancel
