Traditionally, this time of year is quiet. After the holidays, most folks hunker down, plan strategies to recover their budgets and their waistline and stay close to home. I have enjoyed this down time, but with the purchase of some new gear, I am anxious to start to shooting again. We have had a few beautiful days, and fortunately I was able to squeeze in a session or two.  But Spring is just around the corner and Easter, one of my favorite holidays, beckons from my pretty new calendar. Tulips, Easter eggs and baskets, holiday hams with all the trimmings and pastels for warmer, lighter wardrobe...Hurry Spring!
