So you asked santa for a DSLR camera to take awesome photos of your kids. You opened it on Christmas morning and you have no idea where to start. That was me for a solid year. When you hear photographers talk about aperture, exposure, ISO, shutter speed, etc. It’s like a completely different language at […]
Last June our family relocated from Chicagoland to Northwest Arkansas. We moved with no family or friends; we didn’t know anyone. While this was really scary, my husband and I created a fairy tale likeness in our minds – we were “adulting” for real this time! No mommy or daddy to bail us out if […]
