“Meet Jessica! Jessica is a stay at home mom and entrepreneur who coaches runway models. Her son is her best friend and so we wanted to incorporate him into her portrait, while not taking away from the focus. It was so much fun getting to meet these two, and having her little guy run back and forth down the path while we captured the perfect catwalk. It was a pleasure meeting you both!” – Cyndal L
