What is your favorite thing about being a mom?

I love that I get to bring my daughter up in a place that strongly values hospitality, respect, and good manners.

Our family loves seafood–shrimp & grits and crab cakes are favorites in my household.

Who styled the children for this shoot?

Mom

What southern values do you hope they inherit as they grow up?

I hope she understands the value of presenting herself as a lady and the respect afforded to those that do so.

What advice did you get from your on ?

My job is to protect her and teach her.  If my child likes every decision I make as her parent, I’m probably not being the best parent I can be.

Where did you get some of the clothing items?

Ryan’s top and boots are from JC Penney, and her jeans are from Children’s Place. Dad is dressed in Nautica. Mom’s top and jeans are from Nordstrom Rack, dresses are from Belk.
