On the move! Trapskin family portraits

Now that the new site is up and running (with only a few hiccups to attend to), I can catch you up on some sessions from earlier this spring.

This past Thursday we had another change to witness and capture an event that was not only happy, but historically significant in the state of Illinois. Wednesday, June 1, 2011 was… Read more »
