As usual, I’m running behind on things. It’s 2017, and I’m embracing my lateness. So, la-dee-dah, I’m here writing my look back at 2016. It’s only January 6, people. At least I caught the fact that when I first wrote the previous sentence it said I was writing my look back at 2015. And thus, […]

I am gushing for Tara, one of my best friends, and her fiance Ryan. We had a beautiful session with them at Ryan’s family’s river house. It was the first warm day of the year, and it wasn’t very hard to get great pictures of such a photogenic couple! We are so excited to celebrate […]
