{Click} “Work it work it!” {Click click click.} You guys…photoshoots are not just for models, high school seniors, and bloggers anymore. Before I started Graceful Rags back in 2016, I wasn’t that into photos unless I was being a tacky tourist and trying to make it look like I was “holding” the Seattle Space Needle (you know, those pictures that never turn out how we want them to?).
