Mother’s Day in the burgh!

Memories are timeless treasures of the heart. A photograph keeps a memory from running away -like a pause button on life.


Mommy’s, it’s time!
Time for your moment to be in front of the camera!
Guess what? It’s not a cell phone, and I actually know how to take a flattering photo ( no offense, dads … Mum, you know what I am putting down!)
Let me guess.
-you have a phone full of selfies of you and the kids
-you have a phone full of photos of your kids
-you have a phone full of photos of the kids and dad
-you have a phone full of photos, and you have a cute photo of you and the kids of their current age. You keep saying I need to book a shoot and come up with a MILLION excuses not to. Does ANY of this sound familiar?!?
Even IF you have a cute cell phone image, the quality might be “good” on your phone – but go ahead and try to print that bad boy! You are going to be disappointed that you end up looking like a pixelated blog most of the time.
Let’s cut to the chase!
Check out the link in my Instagram bio, “exclusive minis,” and get yourself or drop your honey some hints that you would really LOVE this Mother’s Day gift ( chances are he probably totally forgot that it’s May 14th …DAD’s you reading this ?!? )
Don’t miss your chance !!!!
