This family session holds a special place in my heart, and that’s because I love the Smith family dearly! I have known Hannah and Barrett for almost a decade now (wow does that make me feel old!), having met while studying together at Cornell.

As soon as I met Aurora and Tristan by the Market Square fountain for their Old Town family session, I knew I was in for a fun one! Tristan had the most infectious and boundless energy, which made for some awesome candid shots between the more traditional photos we took. I also loved Aurora’s gorgeous […]
