This Big Bear Winter Engagement Session wasn’t quite as snowy as we hoped for (that’s what you get for early winter in California) but that didn’t stop Sarah and Jon from enjoying every second. We went to one of my favorite little secluded trails that is full of pretty pines, open meadows and a dirt […]
