Stop In and Swoon Awhile…


Out for a Sunday drive, looking for another beautiful portrait backdrop setting for the next photography session. Look what we came across…I am breathless!






I am rewarding this session to the first couple or family that sets a date between July 20th and August 1st.

All followers of Pride in Photos Photography will receive a 20% discount off their session fee.

Tips for photographers/bloggers:

Wrestling with your own incompetence?

PRACTICE, PRACTICE…with landscaping instead of people!

Landscaping will be so patient with you, it gives you NO griefβ™₯

It sits there very still, till you can get your settings JUST right.

But when the practicing is all done, your portraits will be smiling back at you.

I am so excited to see who is going to receive this beautiful backdrop for their photography session.
