Other Fun Shoots

By Sarah Barrett. I get so excited to take photos for my clients, but when I see clients get out of their car is great outfits, I get a good kind of anxious. Kathy and Carlos definitely showed up with their family photo ready. We had plenty of sunshine, green hills, and the perfect day. […]
