Zach in Fall

Wonderful Oliveé!

I am still trying to catch up with editing the summers activities. This month I’d like to feature work shot with the sweet Oliveé from New York. I was really impressed with his enthusiasm especially after a hideously complicated flight, which seems to be the norm anymore. Surprisingly he was unfazed with a calm demeanor …
