Here’s a bit from Sarah about the shoot:
Allison and I had a wonderful chat on our stroll through Brooklyn Heights. It turns out, we have the same alma mater – GO BLUE!! Allison shared with me the story of how she and her mom would have special days off, just the two of them, to relax and explore. She had started the same tradition with her daughter Avery, and I was lucky enough to spend part of it with them for our shoot.
