Overall, I would say I’m not a very fearful person. Stressed and anxious occasionally, maybe haha. But not very fearful of much.  Except snakes.  They are my downfall.  Paralyzes me with fear.

This kid!!! Despite it being a dreary, cold, slightly rainy day, Jaxon came with the best attitude! I asked his mom if he was always like this and she said pretty much!  He quickly informed me that he loved taking pictures.  I laughed so hard when I asked if they had any other picture ideas […]
