This year, I did a Mother's Day Giveaway. My goal was to be able to give one lucky mom the precious gift of family portraits and document this chapter of their family's life. This sweet momma, Allie, won and I'm so glad she did! We connected right away, and I honestly could not picture someone more deserving of this session than her.

Our session was coming to an end, and we stumbled across this beautiful patch of irises in full bloom! I thought to myself what a great spot it was, but I had no idea the meaning it would have for Allie. As we finished our photos and walked back to the parking lot, she told me irises specifically were extremely special to her. She continued to explain that they remind her of someone very dear to her heart, and I couldn't help but to think we had found those flowers for a reason.
