Happy New Year, friends!  After a very busy fall season, I’m finally back to share some of my favorite sessions with you.  First up is the Douglas family.  I’m so lucky I got to see their sweet faces twice in 2018.  I can’t get enough of these handsome boys!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session. ______________________________

It was a very cold and windy November day and this gang hung in there.  At least we had some delicious light and a few good smiles from that little man!
