Firstly, start by booking your holiday photo shoot with Ashley Mikula Photography  Ashley poured her heart into our session and hand picked each prop in the lovely holiday setting, which she designed.  She is an absolute joy to work with and will capture priceless images of your little ones with ease.  Ashley even had a puzzle for each of our children to take home at the end of the session.  They adored her!!

Family Photos with Mediterranean Baby (33 of 15)The girls’ dresses and halos, along with my maternity sash, were hand-made/selected by So Cuddly Creations.  I just cannot say enough about the quality and beauty of these pieces.  Daniela is a genius when it comes to hand crafting the perfect accessories for your little ones and pairing them with the perfect dresses.  Her prices are very reasonable and she will even help style the adults in your shoot to coordinate with your little ones.

It was a gift from my husband and I love wearing it in all of our family pictures so that my son can see it and appreciate it more when it’s passed down to his family someday.  Michael also lent me the gorgeous gold and diamond studded flower cuff for the shoot.  Those are merely two examples of his lovely, unique work.
