My newest find! ~Groovebook~

I love the convenience of using my smart phone to document the every day life at home. It's so easy to pick up the phone and click click click! I am fortunate enough to have a computer and external hard drives to back up my images, but even then I'm guilty of keeping them frozen in some digital format, stored away, never to be seen again.

I remember the joy of picking up my prints from the store and looking back over my photos and reliving certain moments, or simply pulling out an album when a friend came over and giggling over our silly pictures! It saddens me to think what the future generations will have to look back on if all of our images are frozen somewhere, or even worse - LOST when your smart phone calls it quits!

So, back to my purpose for this post, my newest find in the app store, it's called Groovebook! It's a FREE downloadable app for your smart phone that prints up to 100 of your phone photos and creates a beautiful 4.5" x 6.5" photobook and mails it to you monthly, for only $2.99 for shipping and processing, per book. SERIOUSLY? This is such a brilliant idea I'm wondering why I hadn't thought of it first! I just got my first book in yesterday and I've been showing it off to everyone I see!

The photobooks are printed on glossy photo paper and each page is perforated for easy removal and even has the time and date stamp. I think I'm going to leave mine in the books and use them as small albums for my family to keep.

You can choose the quantity of each photo to print (in case you want to tear one out and give away, or keep doubles for the fridge, or even to frame). You can also order additional books and have them mailed to family and friends. I'm already planning what I will print next (birthdays, Father's Day, camping trip, summer)! There is no risk and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

BUT before you decide against it, get your FREE book using this code (HERNANDEZ4121) and see for yourself.  I don't know all of the details since I've just received my first book. I think you will be charged the $2.99 monthly regardless if you order your book or not, but seriously, I know I will be ordering more than one a month. I mean you can't beat the price of having your photos printed and mailed to you! No logging into a computer to upload, no waiting in line at the store to pick up, it's so easy and convenient! I know you are going to love it just as much as I did.

Gage & Brianna Maternity

Gage & his girlfriend are expecting their first baby, a boy! Even though Brianna wasn't very far along, she wanted to do a session in order to use some belly photos for her baby shower invitations. Thanks to Pinterest, we created the perfect invite! She is such a cute preggo! Aren't they an adorable lil family already?

Briana ~ Quince session

Nothing makes you feel older than having a classmate's daughter celebrate her Quinceanera! It was an honor to photograph this sweet girl, or as my 3-year-old Alivia would say, a real life princess! Here are a few of my favorite photos from her session! Briana, you are gorgeous my dear! Always put God first and the rest will fall into place. I wish blessings upon your life.


I love seeing my work in print. I was so excited to order a canvas for Briana to display at her event. Would you believe this is 24x36! It turned out even better than I imagined. I need to get a photo of Briana holding this!
