Portraits: Peyton’s first try with a DSLR

I don’t get to see my niece, Peyton, very often because she and my brother live near Pittsburgh. I got to see her last weekend for the first time since January. She’s gotten so much bigger, smarter and more beautiful. Everything she said and did seemed so unbelievable to me. She’s a very happy little girl, and it rubbed off on all of us.

One night, after I had been snapping photos of her with my digital camera all day, I sat the camera down on the couch and she climbed up and grabbed it. She put the strap around her neck, turned it on and said, “I want to take pictures of you, Aunt Ellie,” and I sat on the ground as she took my picture. It was possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
