Project Pinterest: New Photo Trend for Spring
MY MEMORY WAS JOGGED YESTERDAY BY THIS IMAGE. Yesterday my creative friend Erin shared a photo she took of a young couple near some graffiti.

The spring weather is perfect for creating fun photos. Spend the sunniest part of the day getting set up for the photo and when the light softens in the afternoon you will be able to capture your own masterpiece!
