It’s been wonderful to watch the Quinn’s family grow over the last few years. This year’s family shoot included an new addition, little cutiepie Danny.

Fun Family Photos

December 21, 2015

Sometimes you have to let boys be boys.  With three in the Trowbridge family, Christine and Zach opted to let theirs run loose, encouraging their playful, rambunctious behavior. I love shooting fun family photos for the chance to channel my inner kid. We jumped, we rolled, we tossed leaves, we spun, we collapsed.  It was the best!       […]
