This post does not have much to do with my photography, but working with so many brand new parents, this couldn’t be more appropriate. One of my closest friends (since 7th grade!) had her first baby a couple of years ago after most of our friends already had babies. Lucky her right? She got hand-me downs, loads of advice, the support to ignore that advice if she wanted, and was showered with presents for baby! Sounds like she was set right? Unfortunately, like many new moms, she went through a very difficult adjustment when her son entered the world. She questioned her ability to mom, and lost her sense of self.
My friend, being the amazing person that she is, decided she wanted to do something to help other new parents who might feel the same way. So she and her husband created a company – Reiko Palmer – for giving gifts to parents to send them some love. BUT, these gifts are not for baby, they are for mom and dad, to show them they are valued too. They have spa-like products for mom, fun socks for dad, and COFFEE! My personal favorite, is their chocolate. Sooo good. Check out their website here and show a new parent a little love today.
