A little more than a year ago, my friend Janelle asked me if I could take her daughter Avery’s Christmas pictures. I thought – sure! That sounds like fun! Before then, I was mostly taking pictures for my own enjoyment and whimsy, during travels, and of my own family. I can’t thank Janelle and her husband Sean enough for that first opportunity that helped launch me into starting my own business. Here are a few pictures from this year’s photosession with Avery – once she warmed up to the camera, we were smooth sailing – she’s so cute!
