Ju-Ju Monkey 8th Anniversary Event | Lehigh Valley, PA

For the past eight years, Ju-Ju Monkey has been the go-to place in Allentown for all things natural parenting, including but not limited to: children's classes, education, and high quality toys and baby gear. But it has also been so much more than that. At the heart of Ju-Ju Monkey is the community they've garnered. This incredible tribe has nurtured new mothers, and supported one another through the roller coaster ride that is parenthood - the good, the bad, and everything in between. While the business will be changing things up a bit by closing their Allentown location, owner Sara Moore will be continuing on with what truly makes this place special - her passion for helping fellow parents.

I had the honor of photographing their 8th anniversary event at the Allentown store. It was immediately evident to me the impact this place has had on so many in the community, the outpouring of love and support was simply overwhelming. Here are just a few of my favorite moments.

Things might be changing over at Ju-Ju Monkey, but I think it's clear this tribe is not disbanding anytime soon. Stay tuned to see what Sara has planned for their next chapter. I for one can't wait to see what she has in store for the Lehigh Valley community.
