Ten-Month Portraits at Dubois Park in Jupiter, FL
Meet little Clayton James, C.J. for short, my adorable godson! If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, chances are you’ve seen his cuteness a few times! Although he has been in front of my camera many times since he was two weeks old, this is his first time debuting on the blog! He is ten-months-old today and I just can’t believe how big he is already! Here are a few of my favorite things about this little guy!
He calls me ‘Rina’ (well not just yet, but he will) which is short for Madrina–that’s godmother in Spanish and Italian. Since I am Cuban and I was in Italy when he was born, his mommy and I thought it was the perfect name! Andrew is his godfather and he goes by ‘Rino’ short for Padrino. My favorite thing is that even though Clayton can’t say our names yet, his parents/our best friends have been calling us those names since he was born.
His mommy and daddy are just the best parents this little guy could ask for! I believe that is the reason he truly is the happiest of babies! He rarely cries, he’s always smiling, he kicks his foot to the beat when he hears music playing and if he’s really feelin’ the beat he’ll even dance! Can you tell his parents are musicians or what!?
His signature style is classic like a proper gentlemen and you can often catch him sporting his go-to hat which is naturally featured in this shoot. His joyful little personality has been coming through for months now! He is very pensive, extremely observant and full of expressions. He also can recognize faces very well. If you’re familiar, he will throw himself into your arms, but if you’re new… not so much. He’ll maybe just pass along a friendly wave hello. And if you have a big scary beard be prepared for him to burst into tears! 😉
He has always been good at ‘cheesing-it-up’ on and off camera. Rina’s favorite little model! Now, I hope you enjoy our little impromptu ten-month portraits at Dubois Park in Jupiter, Florida!
Keep smiling, Clayton James, Rina loves you!
Those eyes! One of my favorite shots of the day! Flowers from mommy. Those two bottom teeth!! His favorite new trick…
