Here are some photos to remind us all of warmer days. I took these children's portraits at my favorite secret spot. It was a perfect fall day, everyone's favorite time for year for outdoor portraits. I never thought we would get a photo with the new puppy - he was just too squirmy. At the end of the photo session I was sitting and catching up with the mom when I looked over and saw the puppy sitting calmly with the two girls. I grabbed my camera and frantically starting shooting before they all scattered again. I said to the mom " that's your Christmas card". Sure enough - it was!
