VB Photography is my latest project. I do not have a separate Facebook page, or a photography-only blog for VB Photography at this time. You can see my photographic work on Violet's Buds page. The majority of the images of Violet's Buds items were taken by me. Currently, I am focusing on product photography, and children's portraits.
