Family of 5 with 3 young kids sitting in the sand at sunset at Indiana Dunes.

During these coldest days of winter so far, spring and summer still feel a long way off. But my booking calendar always keeps me thinking months ahead! Although it’s only the second week of class…

“Say Cheese” We’ve all said it before as we attempt to get a somewhat decent photo of our kiddos and yet it usually results in a half-hearted or fake smile.
