Is there a studio in the dmv area where I can go get a holiday photo taken with my husband? We did a photo shoot in the summer and really don’t want a full fledged photo shoot right now. Just a couple of photos in a studio with some sort of Christmas/ holiday set up. They always show stuff like this in movies, wondering if it’s real lol

I've been out of accounting for about 2 years because I decided to move to another country for life experiences. I will be moving back mid 2022 with my fiance and will go back to Audit most likely.

Would it be more reasonable if I went to a different firm instead? How much do you think is reasonable?
