McMother's Day Gift :: Then & Now

Five years ago I helped with a Mother's Day surprise for some neighbors of mine. I photographed their kids and turned the images into a small book that the kids then added their own messages to. This year, I was hired to do it again but this time it wasn't a surprise since mom told her family it was the only thing she wanted this Mother's Day. Below are exerts from the original book along with the shots taken this past May. It's hard to believe it's been five years. It was fun to dig up the original images and see how my style has and hasn't changed.
