I met up with the growing A family and had fun playing with little Gus. His little world was full of leaves, running, and most of all dinosaurs. So I morphed into a brachiosaurus photographer, and we had a grand ol’ time.
I taught a high school photography class for two years, and AnaMichele was one of my students. She is full of passion (which spills over into her photography!), and a genuinely caring soul.
