Sam’s Almost-One-Year Photo Shoot

2012 July 22
by Sarah

My little baby is turning ONE in five days. Where has the time gone?! My blogging goal this week is to share and reminisce about some of what was happening a year ago. This week I will also be preparing for a party and having family in town so we’ll see how this goes.

To kick things off, today I’m sharing our favorite photos from a recent photo shoot Sam and I did with our friend Laura. Laura is working on building a portfolio before she starts her own photography business. When her web site is up, I will share all that info with you too. She is an all-around fun person, which helped make this session a really fun time! She is waiting for her own baby boy to make his grand entrance any day now, which is why these are Sam’s almost-one-year photos.

All of the photos were favorites; it was really hard to narrow them down to share here.

Since I am the main photographer in the family, I’m not usually in the photos. I especially treasure these shots of the two of us.

This next one looks like he’s coming out of the blocks in a race. Future track star? It IS in his blood.

I love the next two shots because they capture an everyday occurrence that is so “Sam”:  twirling my hair when he’s getting sleepy.

My happy boy.

Breaking out the serious face.

He’s into giving kisses these days. I love it.

Sam is a total water baby. We were basically done with photos and just chatting it up when he kept making moves toward the water. So I let him splash around a bit. He got completely soaked and loved it.

I love this kid.

    Love them! OK – help me learn more – which one of you (or both?) was in Track and what did you run/throw/jump, etc?

      I’m the track runner: 4×100, 4×200, 200, and long jump. I actually hold my school’s records in all those but the 200. My brother and sister were also runners (though distance events plus CC) and record holders. My mom would have been if she’d had the opportunity in school and my uncle was a runner and coached CC at the college level.

      You ran CC didn’t you?

        A very belated reply!!!! I am just enjoying some of your past blog posts….I did run CC in high school and did long distance in Track – 2 mile relay and the 2 mile were my main events…sometimes I got to do the 1 mile relay, but sprinting wasn’t my main strength. I did CC in college, but not Track (tried to but got to be too much so I dropped out).
