Photographer taking photographer

We’re in KL for a short short getaway… will blog more about it when we’re back. We just came back to the hotel and I’ve a perfect picture for today’s Photo *heart* Fridays! Nicole our resident photographer did the professional thing to position her siblings. She got them to pose, tilt their head at a…



Love Story–How we started
