Photo Make Over.....

One of the aspects of having my own business that makes me want to rip out my hair in frustration is taking photos of my work. I am dead serious when I say it has taken YEARS to get them where I am kinda happy with them and that includes a 6 month intense photoshop course that had me in tears almost everyday. (which I am, of course, thrilled that I took now!) I have not learned everything, I would love to get a photo lightbox like this one:
