Why you hire a professional photographer.

Sometimes, when I am in my time-suck otherwise known as, Pinterest. I come across something and I’m all, “Oh. This is happening.” A certain Superman picture (that has since been taken off Pinterest.

Updates in pictures

Two years ago, I set out in my photography journey.  I wanted to have an awesome Christmas card.  So, I set it up and had Linda take our picture.  Two years later, tons of hours editing, researching, and practicing later… John asked me to re-do the family picture. He said it was terrible. He wanted […]
