Allison Ratcliffe - Audra,
I seriously get chills every time I look at these (and I’ve only looked at them like 100 times). You are incredible and went above and beyond capturing all of their personalities! We cannot believe Colin is almost two…seems like just yesterday you were here capturing his three-week newness. We can’t thank you enough for these pictures. We will certainly treasure them for years and years to come. Cannot wait to see you in a few weeks (well 9 or 10, but who is counting?) Thank you to the moon and back! xoxo

Suzanne Dimonico - I just love the writing and the photographs. We all have seasons in our lives and I love how you have documented your season while your children are young. You can feel the love you have for them and what an amazing Mom you are. There is no greater investment of your time than with your children, in our rat race of a world, people forget that most important thing.

Susan Waters - Oh my goodness. There are no words… just big tears. So proud of that little man. You are blessed!!!!!!!

Kim Ellison - love that boy!

Sue McFarland - Audra, these are the most gorgeous photos of your sweet Sutton, but the thing tugging at my heart is the wonderful words you wrote saying how you feel about Sutton and your beautiful twins. I wish I had written for my children when they were small. Like you, I LOVED every single minute that they were with me. They won’t really know the depths of your love until they have children of their own, but if anything could get the message to them your loving photos and words will! Thank you for sharing these moments and these sweet babies with us. As usual, you are an inspiration!!

Paul Bender - Aud, Thank you for capturing our children’s lives on film and in your writing. Sutton, I can’t wait to get home to see your other front tooth that was lost today. Your nickname might be changed from Sutty to Toothless (How to Train Your Dragon) on your first day of school:)
