Mirah, dressed and ready to go!
We piled into our tiny Honda and headed up the canyon.
The weather was just so perfect, we had to keep the windows rolled down!
Chelsea looking so glamourous!!
My friend Alicia gave me the green chair!!! It kind of fits into the car…shifting was less than simple.
Mirah loves the wind.
Especially when it means she can get a handful of Belle’s hair.
She is really into grabbing hair right now. It is a good thing mine is short right now.
We drove up south fork, where the fall colors were mostly gone.
I had this idea about putting the chair on this bridge…
It was only marginally successful.
The light was a little harsh.
We moved into this little grove of trees, and found some much softer light, with pretty colored leaves.
We then tried some shots of Mirah.
She was stuggling to stay sitting up. She has been doing really great at sitting up on her own for the past week, so wit thought we would try her out….
It ended with letting go of her on the above shot, and her FACE planting into the leaves. Like snow, that in my mind seems like it should always be soft, this thick bead of leaves had sticks and rocks under it. Mirah was REALLY sad and hurt.
When I saw the bump forming on her forehead and the little scrap on her cheek, I started crying too.
We attempted to sooth her. She loves to be thrown int he air.
It worked momentarily, so we tried to give her something.
Leaves, she loved to hold the leaves.
Chelsea waited on patiently, was we tired to settle her down.
This really did help her settle down.
We walked around and looked for some more places to shoot.
We went near the water.
Chelsea walked around to get a pic across the water.
Another one of my favorites.
