Fall Mini Sessions 2015 I LOVE the fall! The air gets a little crisper, you can start wearing sweaters again. There’s football and apple-picking and the state fair. When I was up in Michigan with my family last week it only low 70s during the day and pretty chilly at night, and I felt like fall […]
