  • Bud, Karen, Logan & Charleigh | Family Session | Stinson Park

    I’ve known Bud and Karen for at least 20 years I think. They’ve been friends with a friend of mine’s parents forever and they really are two of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. I remember Logan from when he was just a wee little thing, but just met Charleigh for the first time when we did the pictures and she is a doll! Check out some of the photos from their session.
