I just love meeting up with PEPS groups as they share stories, advice, and what they've learned as brand new parents! This group of mamas in Snohomish was so sweet and welcoming! We had happy babies, giggly babies, and a only a few tears. ;) I especially loved the little ones' cozy outfits... can you spot the pumpkin hat? After the meeting we went outside for some mini-shoots with mom and baby. The beautiful oranges and yellows of the garden were so perfect for our autumn photos. Thanks so much PEPS Snohomish for being so welcoming to the Happy Film Company! I hope you love these photos of your little ones!!

WHAT IS PEPS?
"Since 1983, the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS), a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization has helped parents connect and grow as they begin their journey into parenthood. PEPS parent support programs educate, inform and create community. We've become a vital resource for new mothers and new fathers in the Puget Sound region, with parent groups serving thousands of families annually.
Each session of 12 weekly PEPS meetings brings parents together to share the joys and challenges of parenthood, and develop confidence in their own abilities. PEPS stands apart from other new moms groups or dad support groups by providing ongoing neighborhood-based resources and peer education, facilitated by trained volunteers. During one of the most vulnerable periods for new parents, PEPS provides immediate and accessible support, creating "extended families" that often last a lifetime."
