I am so glad the sweltering heat of summer has passed and fall is finally in the air.

Lots of energy… and patience with lenses, flashes and video at every turn.

They aren’t always the most suitable shots for framing and hanging over the fireplace, but they are always the ones that really make you smile because they highlight that certain look or capture that special interaction.
I think we captured the thoughtfulness, playfulness, uniqueness, charm, action and beauty of Avigail, J and Katen. Unfortunately, I couldn’t post all 67 pictures. So, here are a few-
And for the record…I didn’t NEED to paint or boost any eye color. That’s just how he rolls.
