Why you should celebrate your work

After writing my year end recap, I realized that I had to tell this story separately. This year has been full of ups and downs, growing up and change. I saw my photography business take off, people would stop me when I was out and about and ask me about Grape Soda Photography.

Tuesday

Project Cleo sessions are never easy, but even more so when the pup is someone close to you. Tuesday is so very special.

The Snow Queen

Bringing a child's dream to life makes my soul fly. Especially when it is one of my own little Grape Soda kids. How many times have you watched Frozen this year? Do you know every word to every song? Every word in the movie....are you ready for it to be over? Well, I am not. I love how much joy the movie brings to my beautiful Miss A. She loves...
