Session Spotlight | Courtney Keim

We’ve been sitting on this fabulous session from Courtney Keim for months waiting for just the perfect time to feature it.  With Halloween just around the corner and trick-or-treating on the minds of lots of little ones, now seems about right.  We love the fact that the dog didn’t get left out of the fun!  Here’s what Courtney had to say about this session:

Last year we did not really have Halloween due to our area being evacuated as the result of a direct hit by Superstorm Sandy. When I packed up the kids to leave our house, I did not realize we would not be able to return … leaving my thought-out costumes behind. This year, we were able to finally trick or treat and at 3, it was my boys first time where they actually understood Halloween.
