I was wondering how much you charge for your family session or individual sessions?

You have a wonderful talent!! I am just starting in the “posing” part of photography. Still trying to learn Photoshop. I have done weddings and other things for years but finally getting to try new stuff. At my age ( 51) it is scary and exciting!!

Thanks, Wanda! I’m a big believer that you can do anything you set your mind to… regardless of age or anything else! Best of luck to you!! :) :)

Hi Stephanie,

I’m just wondering what programs I would need on my computer to enable me to do the digital download?
