Catholic Central and Big Red Steubenville Senior Sessions | Jack and Mike

October 2020 was a beautiful month. We were blessed with many sunny warm days at the beginning and slowly the weather began to cool and the leaves turned brilliant colors.  One of the most enjoyable parts of being a parent is seeing the world through their eyes.
