Snug As A Bug | Chicago Newborn Photographer

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”  - Lewis Carroll from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
