My Review

 It's always fun to read new books on photography and this book is really well put together. I thought there might be some more step by step examples but really this entire book is just full of pictures that say things like "use photography to explore and express your own emotions", and "Prioritize your light". So each picture has an idea for you to try which is indeed helpful. This book is a collective set of many different people's pictures and they really are very good and gave me some new ideas. 
This isn't just a mommy book but great for anyone who likes photography.

Five stars.
