Hey all,

Well, we thought we would throw a wrench into the plans and ended up moving to Lexington, Kentucky beginning October 1, 2014.

It has been quite an adventure from Las Vegas, Nevada to Lexington, Kentucky, but we have quite enjoyed it. We are looking at shooting and posting some new content from this area real soon.  The contact information remains the same and so will the great images and service from both Tina and Mat of South Bay Photography.

Looking forward to shooting with you very soon!
