Member Monday Featuring Julie Chapa

Our next Member Monday photo makes us wish we were on vacation in Mexico! 😍

KelbyOne member Julie Chapa captured the bright blue water and smooth sand in a way that entices and draws the viewer in!

Here’s Julie to share her experience behind the scenes of her travel photography!
