This was my last session of the year, and it sure was a spec ial one! One of my very best friends from high school, Stephanie, and her beautiful family were in town all the way from California and asked me to take their family portraits. I could not have been more thrilled! Between the two of us we have three more kids than since the last time we saw each other, so we had lots of fun goofing off and catching up. It was a little colder than we would have liked (especially right by the lake, brrrr!), so it was a little harder to keep everyone happy and smiling, but we still managed to get some really great shots. I’ve also been experimenting some more with textures and decided to show some here. Let me know what you think! Thanks for being so patient Steph and Matt, and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! I so enjoyed spending time with you guys in person, and I hope we can make it out to CA soon!
