This family is special to me in a few different ways. Not only is Krystyna my co-worker, but also a very good friend of mine. She was also my daughter's first grade teacher last year, so she holds a very special place in my heart. I just love spending time with them, and taking their portraits was no different!

Adam's Senior Session https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2018/8/adams-senior-session Adam's Senior Session


I have known Adam's mom for many years. I would love when she would come babysit my sisters and I. She was always so sweet and lots of fun! When she called to ask me to take pictures of her son, I was super excited! 


 

 

Congratulations Adam!! I hope you have a great last year of high school!!!

Drew's Senior Session https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2018/8/drews-senior-session They grow so fast!


I was lucky enough to learn under Drew's mom for my student teaching. At that time, little Drew was only a toddler. I hadn't even picked up a camera yet. Who would have thought I would be the one chosen to take his senior pictures!! 


 

 

Congratulations Drew!! I hope you have a great Senior year!!!

Callen is 9 months https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2018/5/callen-is-9-months Callen is 9 months!


We took pictures much like this for this little guy's big brother not that long ago. Callen is just as cute as his brother, although he's a bit chunkier. How can you not love all that baby boy chunk!?! He was full of smiles, loved being messy and we had a great time taking these photos.

Having a brand new nephew is so sweet and so much fun! Being able to take pictures of that adorable nephew is even more fun!! Here are a few of my favorites from little Theo's hospital AND newborn session. 

 

Little Theo made his appearance on May 16th. He weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds, 12 ounces & was 21.5 inches long.

I think these 2 cuties had a bit more fun taking photos than they normally do. They got to eat some deliciously sweet watermelon , act a little silly, play with my kids, and smash watermelon on the trees! What a fun time!!!

Look at how smiley this little guy was for me! We had so much fun doing his pictures out at Bay City State Park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was such a happy little guy and made my job seem easy! I can't wait to take his 6 month photos in just a short little while.  If you are interested in the Baby's First year package, comment below or contact All Things in Focus.

Volk Dance 2015 https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2015/5/volk-dance-2015 Love to Dance!

 

We love to take dance photos! Why not? The costumes are adorable and dancing is so much fun! Here are the Volk girls in my favorite dance shots. 

 

Love the sepia with the beautiful window lighting here. 

 

 

I love when kids want to do their own poses. :)

 

 

They thought the ribbons were fun. :) 

 

 

We had to take advantage of the graffiti...it matched perfectly! 

 

 

So cute! 

 

 

This background was perfect for dance photos! 

 

 

She really liked this pink chair. It matched perfectly! 

 

 

This is one of my FAVORITES of her!!! The only thing I don't like is how old she is looking these days. ;)

 

 

We had to get our dance poses in there. 

 

 

I like that momma lets me play and get creative with my editing. I love this one. 

 

 

 

 

 

These photos were taken at Blank Canvas Studio. You can book your session at that location if you'd like as well. Just inquire when you book your session with All Things in Focus. Thanks for letting me torture you yet again. I hope you like them!

A Dream Come True https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2015/3/a-dream-come-true A Dream Come True

 

Little Emma has loved animals for as long as I can remember. Her love for animals quickly focused on horses. She has a little collection in her bedroom, and now she is finally old enough to learn to ride!! We had to capture this special moment of Emma's favorite thing to do! She is a natural! 

 

 

We had to visit the horses first, because that's one of her favorite parts.

 

She made sure to introduce me to all of them!

 

This was tricky, but Emma was VERY patient, because she really wanted this picture! 

 

I don't think I've seen Emma much happier than at the stables! 

 

Love! 

 

She had to make sure they had a little snack, too! 

 

I love how this one turned out! 

 

I could barely get her to look at me here, she was so worried about doing her job!

 

 

The lighting was a challenge for me here, it was rainy, and we were stuck in the dark arena. She was so focused while she was riding! 

 

The colors were so pretty outside, and made a perfect background!

 

Focused!

 

I finally got her to look super quick! :)

 

 

 

It was so fun capturing Emma doing her favorite thing EVER! I can't wait to catch some more shots of her riding in the spring!

This little girl was a sweet surprise. We waited nine long months to find out if she was a little boy or girl. She came out just perfect!! Of course it was fun dressing her up in all of the cute little girly accessories. Here are a few favorites of Natalie's session. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She's so snuggly and I can't wait until she's old enough to play with my daughter. They'll have so much fun together. Love you guys!

Gage is 18 months https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2015/1/gage-is-18-months Gage is 18 months

 

One of the most difficult ages to photograph is 18 months. They don't understand why you want them to sit and what you want them to do, and they just want to play!!! The best way to do it is to just let them play! That's what we did with Gage, so here's what this little cutie looks like at 18 months, having fun being Gage.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He sure was fun to play with. I hope to play with you again, soon, Gage!

Brendan is 7 https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2015/1/brendan-is-7 Ok...mom of the year over here. Here are Brendan's pictures from MAY! I have been so busy with homework and getting client photos done, that mine (and my bestie's) pictures got pushed aside. I still have dance, and many others to get to, but they will have to wait.

Here are Brendan's official 7 year old photos. (with a couple of his sister) And a few fun shots from his birthday. These are not all professional quality, just fun shots and wanted to share anyway! 

He wanted to have a Pirate birthday!! 

 

LOVE that genuine happy giggle smile!

 

He took over at this point deciding where to stand. :) 

 

 

Such a boy! 

 

That laugh... :) And I thought about editing out those tattoos....

forgot to take them off for pictures and thought, why? That's him! 

 

 

This is Brendan. Period.

 

 

She wanted to show off her sweatshirt. 

 

Birthday party shots!! Arrrrr!

 

Pirate ship cake!

 

Ahhh!! Shark! Made by daddy. :) 

 

Friends!

 

We had a treasure scavenger hunt. Reading the first clue.

 

Hook ring toss!

 

Walk the plank!

 

Treasure!

 

So happy!

 

Spoiled!

 

<3

 

They had a blast! What a fun 7th birthday party we had. Now to get these printed so I can scrapbook them in about 15 years.... ;)

 

Brendan looks a little a bit different now with different teeth in his mouth, but he's still just as cute if you ask me. Love that boy. <3

Wow! 9 months? You can see Paisley's newborn  3 month  and 6 month photos to see how she's grown. I have the pleasure of capturing her sweet face every 3 months for her first year! This time she made things a little tricky as she was on the go, and we think she was working on some teeth! She is still as adorable as ever, though!

I loved her Elsa hat, and his nunchuks! 

 

 

The colors in their outfits look perfect!

Logan has the cutest smile here!

 

 

I did not tell them to do that. :)

Tobico Marsh is one of my favorite fall locations for fall photos. It is nice and shady, and usually has really nice colors. Here are my favorites of the Williams family. I have been taking pictures of this fun loving family since the little one was a newborn, and I LOVE watching her change and grow each time I see them!

 

Look at the sparkle in her eye! 

 

 

I loved the seriousness in her face. 

 

 

 

 

 

She was loving her daddy!

 

 

 

 

Ok, she loves mommy, too!

I've been doing a lot of newborns lately, which I LOVE. I used to think all newborns looked the same until I started photographing them. They are so sweet in their own little ways. Here are my favorite photos of Charleigh. 

 

She gave me a few smiles that day. Here is one of them! 

 

 

A bit of a color pop to show off her girly-ness.

 

 

There are not many things cuter than a baby in a basket.

 

 

I like this angle with the bow.

 

 

Precious!!!

 

 

Baby feet!!

 

Cute little family!

 

So sweet!

 

Congratulations on your precious little girl! There are many more sweet pictures. I hope you like them!

Love, 
Cheryl

This little cutie belongs to my cousin. He has a big brother who just loves him! I can't wait to see what he's going to look like when he's a bit older.  Here are a few of my favorite shots of Grayson. 

 

I like this one because you can see the reddish hint to his hair! 

 

 

I love getting pictures of crying babies; And their wrinkly skin. 

 

 

Had to get a baseball picture for daddy!

 

 

Look! Eyes open! :)

 

 

This one might be my favorite!

 

 

Such a handsome little man!

 

 

 

I really like this one, too. He really is a little peanut!

 

 

Congratulations on another little boy! Your house is going to be bouncing with boyish energy from those two! See you soon.

Love, 
Cheryl

Watching Paisley grow: 6 months https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/10/watching-paisley-grow-6-months Watching Paisley grow: 6 months

Where does the time go? 6 months? You can see Paisley's newborn and 3 month photos to see how she's grown. I have the pleasure of capturing her sweet face every 3 months for her first year. This time around we got mom and dad involved, and the colors were gorgeous!  

 

This is my favorite. :)  

 

Look at that smile!

 

It was mommy's idea to stop at the red truck. I am so glad she thought of it, super cute!

 

Another favorite. Melt!  

 

 

 

This is all she was interested in doing. 

 

Had to get that cute outfit. 

 

One more family shot. Too cute!

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing little Paisley again. I can't wait to see her at her 9 month appointment and maybe she'll be standing up by then. Fun!
 
**You can see her other sessions here: Paisley's Newborn Blog and Paisley's 3 month session

Watching Kinsley grow: 3 months https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/10/watching-kinsley-grow-3-months Watching Kinsley grow: 3 months

I am excited that I have another "first year" baby! This means I get to watch her grow! 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year! Babies are so much fun and just keep getting even cuter as they grow. Here's sweet Kinsley at 3 months old.

 

 

 

I think she was posing for me here. ;)

 
 
 

Her blue eyes are gorgeous!

 

We were not going to do family pictures, but look at them. How cute are they? Had to share this one!

 

There's that smile!

 

This one is my favorite. :)

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing little Kinsley. I can't wait to see her at her 6 month appointment where she'll be sitting up and probably full of smiles!

~A.A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh)

 

We had a long car trip to see this little munchkin. It was totally worth it! I think my kids were more excited than I was. She behaved very well for us to get a lot of pictures, and she even let me try a few new things with her. Here are a few of my favorite shots of Emerson. 

 

This is my favorite. I love the wrinkles!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Big brother just loves his little sister!

 

 

 

Had to get one of my happy nephew!

 

 

I love this of the whole family!

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations on your new bundle! Thanks for letting me capture your sweet girl's newness! I can't wait to see you all again soon. Love and miss you all! 

Love,

Talaga Wedding https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/10/talaga-wedding Family is what happens when

two people fall in love...

 

It was my pleasure to share in Amanda & David's special day (or as we call him, D.J.)

I have many memories being silly with D.J. as a kid, and couldn't be happier that he has found someone so special to be silly with.

Here are some highlights of their wonderful day!

 

 

Getting all dolled up

 

I love how her daughter is looking from behind. <3

 

 

 

What a fun present from his bride!

 

I love all the little details

 

 

 

 

 

These dresses were made by the groom's mother. I had to get a detailed shot, they were so cute!

 

 

 

 

So happy!

 

This is probably my favorite...he was trying to see his bride

 

I think he approves!

 

 

Look at the love in her eyes!

 

Loved the details!

 

 

I like this picture anyway, but I love how Harper is looking at them!

 

 

 

 

 

So neat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Had to throw this one in of her daughter. So beautiful!

 

 

Congratulations you two! Thanks for letting me capture your special day! I hope you enjoy looking back at the memories for years to come!

Love, 
Cheryl

Rankey Family https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/9/rankey-family We have been waiting for the perfect day to get these family pictures done, and we found it! It really was a beautiful day, and they have the best background right at their home. I love how these turned out!  

 

Isn't that a gorgeous background? And they are cute, too!

 

Brady is getting to be a big boy!

 

Aiden and his bike!

 

Silly boys!! 

 

I really LOVE this one!

 

Had to get one of mom and dad, too!

 

I had such a fun time being silly with these boys! Now we just have to get that play date scheduled. ;)

His eyes sparkle here!

 

This was one of my favorites. I like the colors and the sun flare. 

 

Big Boy!

 

Just a hint of a smile. He was being camera shy. ;)

 

Look at that face!

 

There's that sweet smile!!

 

We had to have a little fun, too! :)

 

Max, I hope your first birthday is full of lots of fun and yummy cake!

Kinlee is ONE! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/8/kinlee-is-one Adorable Kinlee turned ONE this week! It's hard to believe, it seems like just yesterday I was taking her newborn pictures. She was just the sweetest, and still is! 

 

Her eyes just sparkle here!

 

This was one of our favorites! 

 

Some of her expressions were so cute!

 

Seriously, this shot was too easy...  usually it's nearly impossible, but she just held it up and smiled. What??

 

Sweet girl!

 

Her expression is kinda silly here!

 

There's that big smile!!! :)

 

Kinlee, I hope your first birthday was full of fun and laughter! Thank you for letting me watch you grow!

Watching Paisley grow: 3 months https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/7/watching-paisley-grow-3-months Watching Paisley grow: 3 months

The cool thing about taking Paisley's photos is getting to see her grow! I took her photos when she was an itty bitty newborn. I have the pleasure of capturing her sweet face every 3 months for her first year. I can't wait! A 3 month old isn't really into pictures. She wasn't quite sure why we kept changing her outfits and moving her around so much when she just wanted to cuddle! But we got some cute shots and she was happily sleeping in the car on the way home! Here is sweet Paisley at 3 months old. 

 

This is one of my favorites, because it is just her and what she does. She was definitely teething that day. 

 

We had to catch her sweet smile! It's just adorable!

 

I love the look she gave me here. And a little drool...why not? 

 

Took a little break to make her tummy happy.

 

She was so alert here and had the cutest expression, I couldn't resist!

 

She was happiest with her mommy, of course!

 

 

She was a little sleepy when we first started, she looked like a little doll laying there!

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing little Paisley again. I can't wait to see her at her 6 month appointment where she'll be sitting up and probably full of smiles!

Niki & Dave https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/7/niki-dave Niki & Dave 

May 16, 2014

I know I've told many of you I do not do weddings (I am still not for hire - I'll stick to my portraits for now).  But my cousin Niki twisted my arm just enough for me to try it out on hers. Her and Dave are very special to me and I was so excited to be a part of their wonderful day. Here are a few of the highlights from the day. 

Detail of her beautiful dress

 

 

Shoes and bouquet all ready and waiting

 
 

Grandma putting some finishing touches on the ring bearer

 

 

Making sure everything looks perfect

 

 

Talking to his "new" uncle Dave

 

 

The kids loved watching the window for guests to arrive

 

 

Looking so handsome

 

 

Finishing touches

 

 

And she's ready to get married!!!

 

Here comes my bride!

 

Beautiful girls

 

The flowers complimented their dresses so nicely.

 

The flower girl was a pro!

 

Loving message from Uncle Dave.

 

The vows got him!

 

And her too!

 

So happy!

 

Little details

 

Caught them holding hands up there.

 

Blending their family.

 

We're married! So happy!

 

They definitely liked smooching!


The lovely bridal party

 
 

It's official!


Love the smirk on their faces!

Too cute!

Radiant Riley! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/7/radiant-riley Radiant Riley!

Riley just LOVES to dance. Her attitude changed with every costume she put on. It was so adorable! Here are a few of my favorites from our garden dance walk...

 

This is my favorite! Who doesn't love a little girl smelling flowers? So cute!

 

 

She has the sweetest smile!

 

 

I thought this looked whimsical...

 

 

She's just so adorable!

 

 

This was the costume where her sassy-ness started showing. Too fun!

 

Thank you for letting me see your sweet costumes again! I had so much fun with you Riley and I love watching you grow!

Twins are 2! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/6/twins-are-2 Sweet Twins are 2!

It's hard to believe these sweeties are two years old already! 

Two year old appointments are usually all about playing, and getting what you can get without being picky. Makenzie and Makaylin were much more pleasant than my daughter was at two years old! 

They were fun to hang out & play with while we took a walk at beautiful Dow Gardens.

 

I loved the look of this path with the flowers!

 

I could tell they just love each other. They didn't want to be apart very long. I love this, because it is just them being them. 

 

Kenzie wasn't really into smiling, but we kinda caught her here, and she's still stinking adorable!

 

There's something about a little girl and flowers, just so sweet!

 

We caught the tulips JUST in time!

 

Kenzie was taking a rest, and I love catching these types of candid shots!

 

 

Here is my favorite of them together. It was a composite, but it turned out really cute! 

 

Thank you for letting me capture your beautiful sweet girls! I had so much fun! 

~Cheryl

I remember doing Kinlee's newborn pictures like it was yesterday.

I can't believe she's old enough to stand up against things.

And she's just as adorable as ever!

 Look at those beautiful eyes! 

 

 

This is a cute family picture! 

 

 

Having a little fun.

 

 She was just so happy for me!

 
 
 

Me and my mommy <3

 

 

Ok, maybe she whined once, but she was still so cute!

 

 

What a big girl!

 

Thank you for allowing me to capture your sweet family in photos.

I can't wait to see you again!

Max https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/5/max Max

This little cutie just turned 7 months old.

We had to reschedule a few times to wait for nicer weather, and I'm so glad we did.

They turned out so nice, he was in a good mood and was sitting up so confidently! 

 

He just loves his mommy.

 

It was tricky to get him to smile unless he could see her!

 

I have a feeling he is going to love visiting Daddy's work as he gets older!

 

Look at those baby blues! 

 

And those cheeks!

 

He is such a sweet and happy boy!

 

<3

 

What a heartbreaker!! 

 

They are such a beautiful family! We had so much fun walking around to get these shots.

I'm so glad we waited for a nice day!

Adriana is 3, part 1 https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/4/adriana-is-3-part-1 It is kind of, well, a LOT hard to wrap my head around the fact that my sweet little girl has turned 3!!! 

 

We loved this one because it's a real smile, and with her, that has been hard to get on camera! 

 

 

What a sweet but sassy little thing she's turning out to be. She has already mastered the art of lying to my face, and has these big brown eyes ready for when she wants something and definitely knows how to use them! :) 

 

I am calling this part 1, because I'm going to be doing more photos with her when the weather gets a bit nicer, but I wanted to get a few pics in her birthday outfit. 

 

This outfit was fun to make and she loves it! I just wish she wouldn't grow out of it quite so fast....

 

Here are a few of my husbands favorites. I let him pick this time, since I'm always the one who does the photo choosing. I can't wait to scrapbook these pictures. Maybe I'll get to that in about 10 years...

 

 

 

See?? This. This is the usual FAKE smile she gives us, but she wanted one with her Princess Twilight.

Cheesy, dorky, but cute, right? ;)

 

 

She's quite the glamorous girly-girl type of a gal. Can't say I'm disappointed by that.

 

 

Another REAL smile! Actually, this one was a giggle. YAY! 

 

 

With Adriana's BIG brown eyes, it's always necessary to get a serious pic or two. My favorites are the ones where she thinks I'm not taking a picture and I sneak one! 

 

 

She's just plain beautiful.

 

 

Although this is another fake smile, it was my husband's favorite. Kinda cute! :)

 

Well, that's part 1 of Adriana's pictures for this year. We have to wait for the right kind of weather for part 2 (notice I didn't say warm or sunny...) and we are going to include her cousin in part 3 (I better get sewing). 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my sweetie! <3

Sweet little Paisley https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/4/sweet-little-paisley Paisley was a dream to photograph! She was such a happy girl. She was only FIVE days old! She is just perfect down to every detail!

 

I loved this cute little hat on her. It's so soft and cuddly!

 

 

I love how you can see how new her skin is here.

 

One of our favorites, a sleepy girl and her "brother bear". So adorable! 

 

Close-up of her sweet face!

 

Here's a cute Easter picture! 

 

Can't forget the details!

 

I just LOVE the photo of Mom and Dad in this collage.

 

It was so nice to meet you, Paisley!  I hope I get to see you again soon!!

Wyatt is ONE!! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/3/wyatt-is-one This little boy is always so happy when I see him! Since Wyatt is a big ONE year old now, he was very mobile and was not interested in sitting in one spot for pictures (how boring is that) but we managed to capture quite a few cuties of this little sweetie. Enjoy! 

 

This was mommy's favorite of her sweet little man. I can see why. It makes me want to cuddle!

 

 

You can tell here that this little guy is teething! 

 

Wyatt LOVES to read his books. Here he was reading to me about farm animals.

 

I like trying to catch different angles of their faces when I can. I liked this one. 

 

There's that happy boy smile!!! :)

 

We were taking a little break from pictures. I love taking candid shots when people think I'm not shooting. 
Wyatt and Mommy doing what they love!! So sweet!

 

Happy boy!

 

This is another one of my favorites.

 

We had to get one of him eating his cake. He wasn't too sure about it. I don't think he liked getting messy. 

 

 

And here's a collage I put together of some of our favorites.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY WYATT!
I hope you had a fun one! I can't wait to see you again soon!

Today is our 9th snowday!!! I think this must be some kind of record or something.

 

In honor of the warm wonderful feeling I get when I hear the phone ring at 5:50 in the morning telling me I get to have an unexpected day off, I wanted to share some of my favorite winter snow photos. Some are old, and some are new.

 

 

I hope you enjoy the photos of some lovely people that I adore!! :) 

 

Bekah and Ben

 

 

Loved the color contrast in this one!

 

 

Too cute!

There are some of my favorite winter snowy pictures. It sure is fun to shoot in the snow! Looking at all of them again makes me want to go outside and take new pictures in the snow. I might just do that today! What are YOU going to do with your snowy day? Comment below!
 
 
Sending my snowy love,

Leahy Family https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/1/leahy-family

Look at the smiles on these boys! Not only are they adorable, they were delightful, well mannered little boys. They loved to smile, too, as you can see by the cute pictures we were able to capture! :D

 

The whole beautiful family

 

Connor is looking like a big kid here!

 

 

Evan looks so sweet & innocent!

 

I just love Lawson's pretty eyes!

 

Thank you for letting me capture their cute smiles!

Christmas baby! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/1/christmas-baby I absolutely LOVED the image above of little Miss Emma in front of her first Christmas tree! What a sweet Christmas gift! She was such a treat. She was adorable, had the BEST complexion and acted like a little doll for me to photograph! She was very cooperative and stayed sleeping like a good little girl. Her older brothers sure are going to love having her around!

Holiday mini sessions...phew!!!! https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2014/1/holiday-mini-sessions-phew

The holiday mini sessions were a HUGE success! I had 18 customers this year that I managed to fit in. Last year I think I did about 4. So the holidays were a great confidence booster for me (and my business). Sadly, I had to turn a few clients away because I could not find the time to fit them into my busy schedule! 

I also need to say a HUGE THANK YOU to my two best friends and wonderful assistants, Tracy and Janelle, without whom I would have never gotten so many appointments squeezed into one weekend (without losing my mind anyway)!

We were able to squeeze at least a smile or two out of every little client, even those who were not too excited about the camera in their faces! :) 

 

Now that everyone's holiday cards are all sent out (hopefully) I think it's safe to share my favorites from each session. Here is a quick snapshot of the sessions (excluding the one's asked not to share). Enjoy. I have bigger and better ideas in store for next year's holidays... 

Thank you to everyone who allowed me to capture their holiday memories!
Feel free to comment! 

<3 Cheryl

Fall mini sessions https://www.allthingsinfocus.com/blog/2013/11/fall-mini-sessions

 

The fall mini sessions had me feeling all kinds of emotions! They were the shortest sessions I've had yet, and I was nervous I wouldn't capture what I needed in just 20 minutes? Luckily, my sweet friend gave up her Saturday and came along to help. They all turned out great and I've received so many compliments. The fun part was that I had some new clients and some returning customers! Since it was such a success, it's time to plan for Christmas mini sessions! 

Here are a few images from the sessions:

 

Next weekend are my Christmas minisessions. I have 17 appointments scheduled! These are indoors which can get tricky...Wish me luck!
