A New Take on Family Pictures and How to Describe Them
Here in Los Angeles, CA, we’re starting to get back to some sense of normalcy. Imagine this Memorial Day weekend is your first holiday back home with your friends and family after a long time without seeing each other; especially since the COVID quarantine. As dinner wraps up, somebody might take out one of the old family photo albums to reminisce.
The following hour or so will involve storytelling about the family memories the pictures captured. This stroll down memory lane will bring up a feeling of happiness, excitement, and warm nostalgia that may leave a person or two with wet eyes.

As business owners, many times we have a small team of people or it may be a team of "I". That’s why it’s great to be a part of a Mastermind group. You may be wondering what's the definition of a Mastermind. Have you read the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill? In this book, the word "Mastermind" was first used. It’s where a group of two or more business owners/individuals come together to exchange knowledge and encourage one another. Simply put, a Mastermind group’s purpose is to be a group of committed business owners who agree to meet regularly and help each other grow in both their business and personal lives.

Our Community Comes First - COVID-19
Dear TSP Readers,
As you know, COVID-19 is affecting our daily lives and community. Just moments ago, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended that events with over 50 people either be cancelled or postponed (for the next eight weeks).
I know this time may be difficult for you and your family. I want you to know that I am here to fully support you. Here is what that support looks like:
If you need to postpone your event or portrait session, please email me with the new date and time. I will transfer your event/session date for you if I have the date available on my calendar. I’m happy to transfer all payments to your event/session date within one calendar year.
If the unthinkable happens and you end up having to cancel your date, unfortunately, there are no refunds. However, email me and let’s work together to make the most of this situation. I don't want either of us to be left empty-handed.

Family pictures tell stories; the story of our family. Yes, words do the same, but pictures capture important moments along with the emotions being – for the lack of better words – emoted. In the age of smartphones, everybody takes pictures of the smallest moments. This includes food. Let’s think about it, you care what food you ate at 15 years ago? I know I won’t. However, the way your child smiles will be something you will always want to remember. Especially when they have teeth missing.
