Athens Family Lifestyle Photographer | Made In Monroe

I’ve always admired Mary Hester’s eye for design. She has the ability to make any space feel fresh, cheery and cozy in the best way. She and her husband recently renovated their grandparents home to make it their own and y’all it’s beautiful. The cabinets were made by her husband’s wood shop, Made in Monroe. If you are ever in need of custom cabinetry I would highly recommend them. The quality of their work is just gorgeous.

We recently took an afternoon together and documented Mary Hester cooking her grandmother’s cheese biscuit recipe with her little boy. It was so much fun and the perfect activity for a busy little one! If you’re interested the recipe and credits for their kitchen scroll down to the bottom of the post, the biscuits are delicious!
