When life gives you lemons, Erin is alllll about making lemonade. For their engagement session, Erin really wanted to spend the evening at Smale Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A few weeks ago, I asked you, my friends and followers, to submit any questions that you had for me. Nothing was off limits, and I was so overwhelmed by the response!
