If I had to choose five different locations/seasons for family pictures I would choose Fall foliage, the beach during the summer, a Christmas tree farm, while the snow is falling, and in an orchard of blossoming trees. Let's make it six, because I have to add in front of my house. Those are times I want to remember forever.
Mini sessions are a great way to get a picture for your Christmas cards or just get a yearly picture without having to invest the full amount each year. And mini sessions with leaves to play in are just fun!
