This holiday season we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the ladies who help make the holidays happen, our moms! From baking cookies, wrapping presents, to jazzing up the house in the ultimate holiday gear, our moms are usually going above and beyond to make the holidays special! For our Christmas posters we wanted to take a "mom"-ent to celebrate real moms in Portland with their real kiddos! Working on set with little ones was a new adventure for the Dosha Creative team but the day was the perfect celebration of these ladies and all that they do!
