For most of the this year, I have been anxiously awaiting the Cincinnati Baby & Beyond Expo to arrive, and now the time has come! For the past 4 weeks (or more), I have been working diligently behind the scenes to come up with an eye-catching and totally awesome booth to represent my work for Two Blooms Photography. I decided back in January I was going to step out of my box a little bit and put Two Blooms Photography into the realm of all things baby & let my newborn, baby,...
