Today Ladybug Photography is showing us how to make good use of our plentiful indoor time by capturing photographs of your kiddos using your camera’s manual mode by creating a DIY Indoor Studio.   If you are “stuck on auto”, don’t panic.  You can do this.  Don’t be afraid to take a lot of practice shots as you go.  After all, practice makes perfect, right?

We’re getting pummeled here in Massachusetts this winter.  The snow won’t stop coming, and the kids are on their 5 millionth snow day.  Mother Nature just won’t cut us a break, but the Ninety Nine is offering a little silver lining by letting KIDS EAT FREE ON SNOW DAYS !  If school is cancelled, and it’s safe to drive of course, head on over to your local Ninety Nine Restaurant to get a free kids meal* with the purchase of each adult entree.  We deserve it!
