SO CREATIVE! Mum documents baby’s milestones in the most delicious way

Forget milestone cards!

This creative mum celebrated her baby each month in a much more tasty way – by using slices of pizza.


Dani Leigh Giannandrea, who is a wedding and family photographer based in Maryland, came up with this clever photoshoot after failing to complete her first child’s milestone cards.

“I had mom regret over not finishing [my first son] Charlie’s project, so when we named my son Lorenzo, my mom said we had to do something for his monthly milestones related to his Italian name,” she told TODAY.

“There was pizza grease everywhere! This has been a labour of love but I’m so excited with how they turned out!”
