To celebrate Mothers Day we photographed a beautiful group of Nelson mums. We had one mother in her 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. The mothers were styled by Nelson retailers Trouble and Fox, Cheryl Mackie, Sassy's, Shine and Beetees. Hair by the team at Cardells, Frankies hair by Fay at Aboki, make-up by the team at Prices Pharmacy.
Coordinated by Sonya Leusink-Sladen.
