I always love meeting new people through my work! This family proved why! They were great to work with. Their little girl warmed up pretty quickly and then was a total ham in front of the camera, which always makes the session that much more fun! Justina reached out to me about scheduling a family […]

Truth be told, this family is amazing! I’ve actually been wanting to take their photos for years, so when Kerri reserved one of my fall mini session slots, I was so excited!
