Our photo shoot started with a very upset Sam. He really did not want to take off his sparkly earrings for the pictures. Who could blame him, he looked gorgeous! Not long into the shoot and we were without the earrings, but I could help but include one photo with them on. All of the kiddos in this family were too stinking cute and really very cooperative. In all honesty I think having your portrait taken as a kid feels like cruel and unusual punishment, but this changes when we photograph outside. Having fresh air and cool water to dip toes in could make just about anyone smile on a hot summer day, and so we had a very successful shoot.
