Well, actually, it wasn’t. There was no wind. But it was a great day to take family photos on a sail boat!
It is that time of year when I get to take photos of one of the cutest and bravest little men on the planet. He has grown so much in the last year. And he is just so full of giggles.
Leighton’s parents wanted to do their session this year on their new sail boat. They’ve been hanging out in it every spare moment that they’ve had this summer so it was only fitting that their portraits were there as well.
Here is a little peek into their session.
They are such a beautiful family!! And the love they have for each other! It pours off in waves. I love it.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting an adorable little family. The session was actually a gift to the family from one of my past clients, something that I LOVE to do. It makes me very happy to think that people want to give me and my photography to someone that they love. It’s a great feeling.
Here is a wee little peek into the session.
I had such a great time, guys! Thank you so much. I can’t wait to show you the rest!

A few years ago, I met a wonderful woman who lives on the West coast. She is such a great person and I love her to pieces. When I decided that I wanted to do a collaboration project with someone, Kelli was the first person to come to mind. Cherronelli was born. We actually started months ago and then stopped after one week because of things I had going on, but I cleared a few things off of my plate and now we are at week five! This will go on for 52 weeks, an entire year of photographic goodness. Yay! Click here to see the ongoing project.
Week Four (Week Five is due today, but I haven’t put it up yet!)

Kelli is on the right.

School is going well. My bright eyed little girl has bounced into the car with a smile on her face on all but two of the days that she has gone to class. On those two days, she received yellows in her behavior charts. This made her sad. But she is trying really hard and wants to get to purple.
Since she leaves them to do fun, amusing, glamorous Kindergarten things, Paeton and Aryah are left with me to do fun, giggly, stay-at-home-with-young-children things. It’s different and we miss Tates, but we are adapting.
Not a bad way to start the day!
The other day I decided that it was time to do Aryah’s ten month old photos while the weather was so pretty. Now, I saw the opportunity for some beautiful light, nicely asked (yelled) at John to please come help me gather the girls up before we lost it. I stripped the baby as John helped Paeton into one of her favorite dress up outfits. We rushed out in the front yard, threw down a quilt, and placed the baby on it. So, Aryah loves to crawl. She’s been doing it for months now but only recently started sitting. This meant that I knew we would have about 1.2 seconds before she tried to crawl off the quilt and attack some pine needles. I was correct and after several attempts, I got one usable shot. I even tried to put her in a doll bassinet to keep her sitting and not crawling out of the frame. That ended up in hysterical laughter because she decided that particular moment was THE BEST time to pee. Back on the quilt she went.
Good thing she is cute.
Paeton is notorious for wanting to have her photo taken when it isn’t really her turn. Who am I to say no to that adorable face?
And look at this!! Both of them together and looking at the camera.
I’m so lucky.

It does look like we are completely surprised and caught in the act. Just a mama stealing smooches from her baby; nothing to see here, folks.
I haven’t posted photos of the Itty in a long time. I keep saying I need to do ‘official’ portraits of her and post, but I always end up cuddling instead! I mean, look at her, wouldn’t you cuddle all day long, too? Maybe I can con John into doing some portraits with the two younger girls today while Tatum is at school. Paeton DID pick out her own little outfit today (and did an EXCELLENT job) so why not show it off?
