Last weekend, I had a wonderful opportunity to take photos for one of my oldest friends who was taking on a fairly monumental task.......babysitting her one year old nephew for 5 days! I was quite impressed with her bravery, as I am not sure I would want to take on such a task....but she did a great job and had such a great attitude!
Since this little munchkin lives out of town, I hadn't the opportunity to meet him yet. So, when he arrived in town, we made plans to finally get together. We decided to do a photo session at one of my most favorite places in the world...Presque Isle Beach.
Growing up in Erie, I loved our little beach. It isn't the ocean, but it was 15 minutes from my home so I could visit it almost any time I wanted - whether it was the middle of summer or the middle of winter. Those beaches are filled with so many great memories - sunning, swimming, boating, biking, running, rollerblading, hiking or just taking a drive....I loved that place (still do). And now I enjoy bringing my own little ones there.
Anyway, we found a quiet little beach with no people, and plopped little Max down. He wasn't the happiest little baby that afternoon. Sadly, we think he was just suffering from a bit of homesickness. But he was still such a trooper and was amazingly tolerant of the strange lady with the camera.
And here he is - Mr. Blue Eyes, dressed to be perfectly coordinated with the beach setting!
"Lady, you are seriously getting on my nerves."
