I did a professional headshot this past week, and I was trying to get my setup all ready to go. I hung the backdrop, placed the stool, and clicked on the light. But I needed a subject to help me get my camera ready. The parrot just wasn't doing it for me (and, as you can see by the wrinkles in the background, I had some camera adjusting to do).
Along came my Samantha, and she willingly hopped up on the stool for me. Isn't she just the sweetest little peanut?
She chatted and flirted while I clicked, adjusted, clicked. She was quite the little comedy show. Cracked me up!
The most hilarious thing I'd heard in a long long time was, "Mommy, here's my teenager face." And then she did this:
She couldn't stay "teenager" for long though - those dimples gave her away. In fact, if you ask Sammy to draw a picture of herself, she'll draw a circle with arms coming out the sides, legs out the bottom, dots for the eyes and nose, a big smile...and a couple more dots for dimples :-)
Teenager to almost 4 in 2.6 seconds:
Seriously...how SWEET is she?!
This is the shot that I cropped and put in her birthday invitation:
My sweet little Sammy. Four years ago I was waddling around wondering "was THAT contraction a real one?"
Proof that God Almighty loves little ol' me very very much...He gave me this little girl to raise ♥
PS. See...no more wrinkles in the background :-)
