Winter is a special time for wonderful children's photo shoots. Children love winter. When the weather is snowy, and everything around becomes incredibly beautiful. This is a time of fun and enthusiasm. We went out into the woods and rented a pony. It was a wonderful and fun walk, and of course, I took an interesting photo.
