The Glamorous Life of Blog Photography

Let me take you behind the scenes for a few minutes at a glamorous real life blog photo shoot. I am a new blogger and I have a budget of practically nothing. I also have two small daughters, so the only time I can blog is late at night after they go to bed.

All of a sudden my youngest stops and says, “I need to make memories so later in life I can remember how good my life was.”  I instan... Read More »
