Olivia’s First Year | Wilmington NC Family Photographer

So, if you’ve read my blog before you know how much I stress the importance of capturing every stage in your child’s life. So many people spend a crazy amount of money on the latest fashion or newest technology but when it comes to reserving their families memories they don’t want to spend the money. Photography is an investment, 50 …
