Warm temperatures and beautiful fall foliage!  The sun was just starting to dip behind the tall evergreens but we made the most of the last splashes of light.  Photographing these little active kiddos we moved around the community garden finding little nooks where there was a warm glow, tall grasses and climbable trees!

It was a cool summer day in June but that didn’t stop this session from being dreamy!  A winding creek, grazing horses, green pastures.  This session was literally a welcomed breath of fresh air amid the pandemic.  Congratulations to our friends Callie and Steve on their beautiful baby girl!
