I LOVE taking photos of my niece and nephew. Not only are they adorable, but I feel like I get that extra little smile that is saved for their Aunt Holly. Maybe that’s just what I’d like to think but I’ll still keep taking photos of them. 🙂 On this particular day, we were having fun with bubbles and playing on Grandma and Pa’s bed.
