If you'd like to see your kiddo(s) featured as our next Kiddo Muse, please email Jessica Re: Kiddo Muse at email@example.com! We'd love to have you!
I love all of these kids! Ava is my god-daughter and so I’m perhaps a bit biased. I’ve also been present at each of their births, so midwife and mid husband make me quite happy! They are all super creative and come by it naturally!
