The weather man predicted a storm arriving on-island that day. The wind was blowing 15 knots, but that didn’t stop Savanah + Emery and their folks. They were excited for one of my portrait sessions and seeing what pictures we could create together. I LOVE photographing with over cast skies. It makes a color photograph glow and people don’t squint. Also, the beaches are usually quiet which makes for a simple background. Emery, their 11 month old, was very serious during the entire session and didn’t shine me a smile the entire hour on the beach. Then, when we were about to leave, he couldn’t help himself but to turn on a smile after mom’s cuddling and dad’s toss in the air. Kids just LOVE that! And I just love photographing in whatever weather is called up on the menu that day. It is all unique and wonderful and has it’s own exceptional characteristics of merit.

James, Emmet and Graham were after one thing only – fun! Well, Martha’s Vineyard is not an easy place to get to but once on-island there is more than ones share of playful things to do. Their parents, the wise elders, booked their stay at the Winnetu Resort, which meant walking distance to the beach and afternoons of merriment and relaxation.
