Julia emailed me in November asking if we could schedule her engagement session while she and Chris were visiting Pittsburgh for the holidays. I was afraid this might not work out, because while many people come back to Pittsburgh to visit their families, I leave Pittsburgh to go spend a week with mine. Luckily, it worked out that Julia and Chris arrived right before I left, so we were able to get their session in just before I left town.

It was a pretty cold and snowy morning. But Julia and Chris live in Wisconsin, so this was no big deal to them. I love winter, and love the holidays, so I was happy to be out shooting. Here are a few of my favorites.

Julia and Chris – can’t wait to see you on your wedding day in August!
