BONUS: If you’ve followed along my blog posts in the past, you know that I like to highlight other photographers (“Community over Competition” will always be my motto!) and what they’re up to and what they have to share. So before you go, I just wanted to share a fellow photographer’s beautiful blog post about getting out of a photography rut this winter, written by Ruth Young, a very talented Northern Virginia Photographer. Even if you’re not a photographer, or even an artist, it’s still worth the read because there is commonality in the value of changing your perspective if you’re in a rut in general, which let’s face it, can be so common this time of year. And if you have children and are interested in photographing them more but lost some inspiration, her post is the perfect one to read. And her photography is just stunning, so enjoy!

  1. These prenatal spas sound devine!

    Gosh your photos are just stunning!!! Each and every one! And now I want a massage!! 😆
