Baby Ornament Photo Shoot

I’m walking through Jo Ann’s with my dad one day when we had this brilliant idea for Z-man’s Christmas photo shoot. Rather than stuffing a baby in a stocking or wrapping like a present, we wanted to make him an ornament! We quickly text my cousin Mallory over at Griffin Handspun to see if she […]

Halloween Photo Edits

I personally prefer Photoshop, but PicMonkey makes photo editing easy for the average user who doesn’t have time or patience for Photoshop. For Halloween […]
