Family Photo Shoot Ideas

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing by brother and his cute little family down at Gratz Park. The grounds there are beautiful and it is located right in the heart of downtown Lexington, which is full of  huge historic buildings. I don't consider myself a professional photographer by any means, but with a little help from picmonkey.com (and great looking subjects), you can easily edit photos to look amazing. So, today I wanted to share some family photo ...

He vowed to never go camping with me again. I was a hot mess. Now my idea of camping is staying at a Holiday Inn, or any other hotel less than four stars for that matter. (Yes, I am a hotel snob.) Anyway, if you ...
