listening to Bruno Mars’ ‘That’s What I Like’  (on repeat).

watching 13 Reasons Why.

reading Hopeless.

editing my Mommy + Me mini sessions from last weekend.  I couldn’t have asked for a prettier day and the pictures turned out SO great!

designing photo books  for a few friends who have admired my own family’s yearbooks and are grateful I’m offering to DO IT FOR THEM with my new Photo Organizing services!
