Don’t Wait

When was the last time you had professional family photos taken?  Ya know, where you pick out outfits for everyone in your household? We all have different styles we like.  I have always preferred more natural shots, in natural light.  In years gone by, we had family photos taken in those tiny dark rooms at […]

Suffering in Silence

Last month I was asked to write a guest post for a friends blog.  I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to write about.  I had so many different ideas floating around in my head.  I wrote another post, but decided it was a bit too personal.  Writing that post helped clear my head and […]
