Beth Fletcher Photography » Natural Light Photographer

7 minutes

Three important rules when you are a Mom with a love for photography:

1. learn how to use your camera – really learn, not just guess.
2. always know where your camera is
3. don’t instruct, don’t interrupt play, just let them be.


I notice Clara sitting on my bed sitting with the iPad.
