Christmas Family Portraits

This family won a gift certificate, and I’m so glad they did!  Their perfect mild day turned into perfect Christmas family portraits.  Formal family portraits outdoors can be tricky sometimes…Soggy ground, heals, crisp white dress, and wind are always a concern, but all of the risk paid off.  Vicki and her family were great to […]
