Mack & Chelsea, of McGowan Images, grace my blog once again with their model presence. Remember Johnny & June? My ROCKSTARS are back! This time they brought their offspring (also ROCKSTARS, as seen here)…and the family fluffy pet, Gertie! Of course, I basically had the time of my life. Any time spent with McG is well spent.

Y’all mean the world to me – great mentors & … Continue reading McG Family Christmas Portraits
