Family Photography Neutral Props

Have you ever done a photo session with your child or grandchild and they brought their favorite toy into the session? It is probably the bright yellow/pink elephant that doesn’t match anything. Or the horrible multicolored thing you hate. We have all been there. It is their favorite, but it looks awful in the photos....

How did Kara start photography?

Cake for no reason

Did you know cake or cupcakes is one of my very favorite things? I am very picky about which kinds, but I absolutely love chocolate cake with white buttercream frosting.  Gigi’s used to be my favorite – but they went out of business.  So now sometimes I just buy an HEB cake for no reason...
