With everything going on Mahli made us feel very reassured, wearing gloves and a mask at all times. We were grateful that she was able to make us feel so comfortable and I can’t get over how beautiful the pictures came out. Thank you for capturing our rainbow baby in images I can cherish for a lifetime!
