The Thompson Family returned for another round of mini sessions this year and it fills my heart being able to photograph them each fall (check out their previous mini session here). Brooke and Ryan are incredibly sweet and appreciative every time I see them, and I am lucky to be in the presence of their precious little boy, Sam! I had the pleasure of taking Sam’s newborn pictures and it has been so much fun capturing his personality as he grows. We met up at Blackwood Farm Park as they opened for the day and it was a little bit chilly. Actually it was pretty cold, especially with a very curious 18-month old who just wanted to run around and grab items off the ground. Sam was a trooper, even when he clearly had enough with the pictures. He may have been cold and eventually got a little upset, but it made for some very sweet, snuggly moments. I am always looking forward to my next session with the Thompson Family, who will soon be celebrating their son turning 2 years old!
