I figure that if I want to post sessions from my outdoor Winter engagement sessions I better do so before Spring is here. I know that everyone is patiently awaiting Spring but it has been a terrific Winter with lots of snow for beautiful outdoor Winter sessions! Kim & Brandon will be tying the knot later this year and I’m very much looking forward to working with them again:)
