Favorite Children’s Christmas Books

A Sister Valentine’s Session -Library of Congress, DC

“Photos should let you take a glimpse into a soul.” Shy children just have a way to my heart. When they are bashful and can hardly make themselves look at me, it makes me want to help relax and move them into a comfortable zone that they can let you see into their soft and […]
