    What amazing locations! These are fabulous, Kristina! I’m sure these families were thrilled with these shots! Have a wonderful Holiday, Kristina!

  • Wow, your family shots are so beautiful, just like you and your family. Seems like you had a lot of fun together that day. I love the bokeh in the single portraits, but my favourits are number one and ten – really nice.
    I wish you and your family all the best for the end of this year, and I am looking forward to follow you in the upcoming new year – Happy new year 🙂

    So much happiness in this family, you captured it so very well!
    Love the frosty mug images and the silhouettes but my favorite is the girl twirling her dress ♥
    Would love to have a get together, hope we can make it happen in 2016!
    Happy Holidays!ReplyCancel
