Attention Mammarazis: Learn how to take better photos!

  If you’re like me, you have a long lost camera hidden away in an office drawer somewhere. I used to own the book “Digital SLR Cameras for dummies” and carried it with me everywhere. When I traveled for work, it was in my carry-on. When I went on vacation, I tucked it into my suitcase thinking I would *finally* have the time to read it. When I went on long road trips with my family, it was at my passenger side feet just waiting to be thumbed through. This darn book sat on my bedside nightstand for no less...


Spotlight Saturday:: Meet A Family Focused Photographer Who Wants to Inspire Others…

This week, our spotlight shines on Jenna Arvidson, of Among The Wildflowers Photography. Based out of Monument, Colorado, Jenna’s mantra is: “Encouraging moms and photographers to laugh, grow, and enjoy every day.” If you’re geographically in her area, you can get in touch for affordable options on documenting your memories. If you’re not physically near her – like us Midwestern folks – you can STILL take advantage of her skills! Jenna offers a blog that she hopes will inspire moms (and others) to take pictures on their own! Her blog has helpful advice such as 10 Steps to Nail Your First...


Pinterest Fail – Newborn Baby Style

It’s always interesting with the Walkers….

The Truth Behind the Photos

I have always been amazed by the beautiful pictures that photographers are able to capture.  Why are all of the other newborn babies on the planet sleeping through their newborn sessions while mine are pooping on the backdrops?  How is it that every other toddler is seated calmly on a tiny bench, holding their chin in their neatly folded fingers while mine won’t even venture into the shot of the light on accident? Then, I became a parent.  I was let in on the little secrets that you aren’t privy to until your status changes to “Mommy” or “Daddy.”  ...
