Ok folks, couple of things about this weekend.

Megan Again: Flawless Family Fotos?
By Megan Wirts
Family photo day is a day that I love as well as a day that causes me to stress out and turn into kind of a control freak.

I can honestly say that I was more prepared for the stress of being a new parent and a parent to toddlers than I am to be a parent of preteens or teenagers.
