Portrait Session – Bridgeen

Earlier this week my friend had been trying to order Christmas cards but realized she hadn’t taken any Christmas photos yet. We very quickly set up a time a couple days later to do a shoot.

Over the course of 3 weeks, my journeys took me through 8 airports, 2 National Parks, 4 costal cities, … Continue reading Searching for Home
