Michelle & Presley – Sunshine on a Grey Day

Sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t cooperate. What started as a sunny, mild, December day turned grey and overcast by the time I joined up with Michelle & Presley. It did, however, remain unseasonably mild and was far better than the wind and sleet that caused us to reschedule our first session.
