Michelle and Jared are one of my favorite families to photograph, because Jared is Farmer J’s brother (also a Farmer J)!  I always look forward to seeing everyone’s bright smiling faces and receiving hugs from all, but especially from their twins.  I have learned that it is helpful to come fully prepared with treats to […]
