Family

I recently had the pleasure of working on a project for Moneysense Magazine to follow three families going through their morning/lunch/evening routines, while focusing on the mothers and their children. Having a little girl of my own, I’m all-too aware of how difficult these routines can be, so a big thanks goes out to the families opening their doors for me.
