This Mother’s Day, we have something a little different to share. If you follow the blog, you can sense we tend to keep the personal and professional separate. Our work, after all, is about realizing our client’s visions and dreams, not about ourselves. We really embrace being “behind the scenes.” This Mother’s Day, though, we are delighted to share a project we collaborated on with photographer Rachel K Photography. She is doing a series on four “mompreneur” interviews in celebration of mothers who are also business owners. You can check out the feature on her blog. In the meantime, we toast all mothers and those who mother others this weekend and every day.
