Shooting Isn’t All This DMV Newborn Photographer Does!

Whats the first thing that come to mind when you think about a newborn photographer’s job?

Taking pictures! Right?

Well, I’m here to tell you that is only a tiny part of what I actually do! Like maybe 10% of my time is spent behind my camera. And most of it is spent in-front of my computer screen! That’s why I own so many blue light glasses!
