"Lessons Learned" by LG Belarmino
Featured Collection: So Sophie – Clever
Like all mothers, we have this instinct of protecting and loving our babies. We love them because they came from our body, they are adorable, and we feel that they are dependent on us. But as they grow, we learn so much from them. They are starting to have their own personality, identity and confidence. These new characteristics gives us more reason why we love them so much.
“Soar” by Suzanne Sergi
Featured Collection: Fine and Dandy – True Blue
I wanted to document my son's accomplishment of building his first Lego creation. He owns so many of these detailed creations, but never had the confidence to Try on his own. One afternoon, I told him the possibilities are endless with all the tiny pieces.
It did not have to be exactly like the picture. All he had to do was use his imagination. Well, after a few attempts, he did it! I was so proud of him for trying, and not giving up! The lesson he learned from a plastic creation is priceless.
