In the busyness of holiday photo sessions, I’m so glad there was opportunity to photograph this wonderful family and their newest addition. It’s easy to take pictures of people who clearly love each other so much! We stayed indoors because of the blistery temperatures but light was kind and our time together was fruitful. Enjoy this […]
