The Many Faces Of Samantha Ruth

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: SWEET is she?!

Positively ridiculous!

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. more wrinkles in the background :-)

I have a "Ruth" (Abigail Ruth) whose birthday is this month, too. The 17th to be exact. She'll be 16, and boy, do I remember when she was 4 going on 20! Those were good times. *sniff*

She is ridiculously cute and beautiful. Those dimples! What a doll. LOL at teenager. She looks so much like you.

You have a beautiful model there! (Much better than the parrot) She just radiates HAPPY!

What a fun post. My little girl turns four in December and I love it when all the little girl silliness comes out. Too often she tries to act like her big sisters.

I had her picture taken on Saturday. When I asked her if she was going to smile she said, "Mama I have all of my smiles right here in my head." :-)

She is truly beautiful! She makes a much better subject matter than the parrot (although he was cute...he wasn't nearly as wonderful!).

What a LOVELY series! Makes me feel all brand new and fresh grinning back at that smile. Thanks for sharing!

Oh my. Those dimples! She is a gorgeous little dolly for sure! :) What a sweetheart.
