Romantic Rustic Winter Paradise Shoot in West Michigan (18)

I consider myself to be very much a summer person but every now and again a shoot like this comes around and I find myself falling back in love with the romance of winter. I love the thought of getting cosy by a warm open fire, drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows and there is something about snuggling under a blanket that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. Well, it seems I am not the only one that can see the magic in winter as shoot coordinator, Kendra Higgins is here to share her inspiration  for this rustic winter paradise shoot…
