maternity photography black gown

Since I had my first baby at 34 weeks I had almost nothing ready. The furthest I got was a list of things to pack. Plus-side of this is I realized how little you really need to bring with you. I’m going to tell you right now the absolute most important thing for me was […]

Let’s start off by just putting it out there. I freakin’ love this thing! I saw one like 5 years ago for the first time and then had a bit of sticker shock and then totally forgot about it. A few years ago I was looking into backlight options and how to get a pure […]
