2009 Hayden and Logan bathtub (1 of 1)

Photoshop Lightroom is my new best friend.  I think I might actually print some pictures for the first time in 3 1/2 years because of this handy little piece of software.  I still don’t have any idea really, of what the eff I’m doing, but whatever it is, I sure am having fun doing it.  I just […]
