First Baby Photographic Magic Needed

Ah now that the yuletide festivities have come, been enjoyed to the nth degree, and finally gone, I can safely say that really was the most wonderful year end for some time.  We had family celebrations – a baby in our midst, the first one since 1989 when baby’s uncle made his  eventual appearance.   This […]
