Project 52: Week 1 {New} – Spokane Photographer and Doula

A few photographer-friends from the PBAP invited me to join a Project 52, which means, each week of this year, we will share an image in line with the theme of the week. This week’s theme is “New,” and I am working hard this month to learn many new ways to wear my babies. Below is Chloie and I, all wrapped up in a Hip, Kangaroo Carry, with a Kerrington Pearl woven wrap. This is a brand new carry for us, and she loved it so much, she was asleep before I even got done wrapping!  (Colour version on my Instagram.)
