Kansas City Family Photographer >> Baby Sam | One Year

Where oh where did the time go!? I was documenting Baby Sam when he was still just a cute baby bump! Everybody remember Beth and Evan's celebration session last year?? Us 3 (4, if you count 4-legged big bro, Oscar) got together last April to celebrate their pregnancy, celebration style and then made sure to get together every 3 months after Sam's grand entrance to document his entire first year!! Including his first Christmas! From newborn Sam, to 3 months, 6 months, 9 months - and then now....His ONE YEAR you guys. I can hardly believe it! 

It's been such a special journey to be a part of, I couldn't be happier that these guys asked me to tag along with them and document the cuteness that Sam is! He's always been so cute, but it just keeps getting better, he's such a precious baby!! 

For his one year session, Beth filled Sam's crib with blue and white balloons - which I'm not sure Sam was exactly thrilled over. He did decide to do the usual - "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to", which regardless of a sad face was still too adorable for words. 

Sam went for an outfit change and emerged in a cuteeee top noting "WILD ONE" - that's him :)
We did a few more shots in these guys' home before finishing up nearby outside, - complete with a blanket and family story time :)

To finish up, Beth brought one of Sam's newborn photos in a frame and handed that over to Sam. He just held it for the camera, smacked the frame with his chubby little hand while giggling - look how far I've come he seemed to say :)

Beth & Evan - Thank you guys so, so much for this whole year!
