Meet Sam! Sammy. Sam-o. Samothy. No matter the moniker you choose, he’s pretty stinkin’ cute! I am SO glad this session worked out, because the weather was certainly not on our side. Even though we were indoors, the rainy skies have been in full effect the past 48 hours here in San Antonio. But no amount of dreariness outdoors could dampen the cuteness overload going on inside! I must preface this by explaining that when I first moved to Dallas, Juanita (and her roommate, Katie) were my next door neighbors. My roommate and I were so excited to have fun girls our own age living next to us, and it didn’t take long for us to become friends. I can actually trace the majority of my current friend network back to this very happy coincidence. Without Juanita and Katie, I never would have met the people who have become my closest friends here – many of whom you’ve seen on this blog! Anyway, much like our friends Jodie and Spencer, Juanita and John became parents of this beautiful boy by way of adoption. While they were (unbeknownst to them) babymooning in Cabo, little Sam was making his grand entrance, just a few beats away from their lives. Within a very short time after they came home, they discovered that Sam would be theirs, and so their journey began! Can’t think of a nicer way to start down the road to parenthood than by the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific. And speaking of sparkling blues, how about Sam’s gorgeous eyes! He has an absolutely fantastic head of soft dark hair to go with those baby blues, and some yummy pinchable cheeks! He’s just as sweet as can be, and I’m so honored that they asked me to capture these first official family portraits – we even got pups Lucy and Kirby in on the fun! Welcome to the world, Sam!
