MILES NEWSOME OF APOPKA


8 cover.indd 1 2/23/11 2:31 PM and PLAYGROUND Spring 2011


Photographer: Amy Smith www.amysmithphoto.com Model: Miles Newsome We love Amy Smith’s magical newborn photos and couldn’t resist the adorable, cuddly baby boy on our cover. Miles Newsome is now 3 years old and lives in Apopka with mom and dad, Hope and Ronald, and older sister Veronica (6). The Newsomes keep it real with a weekly family game night, where Miles is known to play a mean game of Chutes and Ladders.
