With a brand new year and brand new goals, what better way to begin the new year than with the theme: New Beginnings! Every month we send out an “open call” to all of the the photographers and momtogs and hobbiests in our community and ask them to share some of their photos of our monthly theme and we’ve got some beautiful work to kick off 2017!
