Gorgeous Motherhood Session by Olive and Aster Photo 

Thao Tsuda is a family photographer based out of Colorado and her is breathtaking!

From Thao "I beleive that art is a reflection of how the artist views the world.  With my work, I choose to use photography as a way to showcase all the beauty and joy that parenthood has to offer. I want parents to remember all those sweet butterfly kisses, the warmth of their child's hand in theirs, and how it felt when you were their world. Because at the end of it all, it's the love and connection that makes all the long days and nights, mountains of laundry and dishes worthwhile. :)"
