Nick approached me with the idea to take photos of his brother, Matt, and him to present to their Mom on Mother's Day. I, of course, said yes: I am a huge believer that photos make great gifts, so we headed to Balboa Park in San Diego for a multi-outfit photo shoot.

The day after Mother's Day, I received an email from Nick and Matt's mother, who let me know that the photos were "the best Mother's Day gift besides the Siamese kitten 4 years ago. I have wanted nice pictures for 20 year and finally have them." What can I say? It's hard to compete with kittens! Ha!
