Mommy + Me Holiday Session - Erica + Piper- Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm

Being a parent is one of the most important things a person can do... especially if the child has four legs and a waggy tail! Erica contacted me to inquire about having a very special holiday session done for her and her baby, Piper! After coming up with an awesome game plan, we met, with her amazing "assistant" Vincent and we started this session! We soon realized the session we had planned on having was probably not going to be as we imagined. Piper, is a dog. Back Achers in a Christmas Tree Farm. Dogs love trees, sticks, and foreign smells. We continued on basically working around Piper and her easily excitable snout. What we ended up with is the cutest, yet most honest holiday session yet! I hope you all enjoy the adventures of Erica + Piper!
