Sam l All Boy Baby!
The best thing about little baby Sam is the curly swirl of a cowlick right smack dab in the center of his hairline. And it total suits him. Like his parents, this little guy was so full of personality. At only a few days old he was giving me little gasey grins and popeye winks. It took some doing to convince Sam that everything that was going on around him wasn’t all that interesting and that it would be in his best interest to fall asleep. It was no easy task. As I would whisper to him the suggestion that he should go to sleep, I kept reflecting back on our family car rides where we try to convince our children that if they tap a LONG nap the ride won’t feel so long and we will be at our final destination before we know it. They never fall for it, and Sam wasn’t about to either. I was able to get a few shots of him looking asleep as his eyelids would eventually get heavy enough with sleep that they would sag for brief moments before he stuburnly forced them back open. Seriously, he was a pistol! I have decided after Sam’s shoot that boys are way more difficult to photograph. Trying to keep their little parts and pieces out of pictures isn’t all that easy sometimes 😉
