Sammi Jo and the Seriously Goofy Faces Shoot || Queen Anne, Maryland

Okay. Okayokayokayokay, I always get super excited to work with Ashley, Chris and little Samantha Jolene. Can you blame me? Beyond the obvious fact that they make such a beautiful family, they are constantly cracking me up with how really real parenting is. But, this time? Oh my gosh you guys....

(Seriously, if you're like me and can't get enough of these guys, the baby bump session is here, and Sammi Jo's newborn photos are here.)

....BABY HARRY POTTER TIME. *insert all the heart-eyed emojis here*

We kicked off our shoot in this amazing onesie, and I basically had to keep walking around in little circles in glee. Those big glasses on a tiny baby, y'all. 



Oh? What is this, Miss Sammi Jo? We know you're up to no good, but are you foreshadowing some crazy faces you're going to make?

Why yes, I think that is exactly what she was up to. The little miss wasted no time hamming it up for the camera with all of these hilarious expressions.

But the best ones, by far, were the ones she made in reaction to her papa tickling her. 

On to exploring some local scenery - these guys all get big ups because it was *hot* on this evening. Like, stifling, no breeze, muggy as all get out hot, but they looked like cool cucumbers throughout. 

We finished up our shoot at the always-gorgeous Tuckahoe Park, taking advantage of the still pond and the beautiful tiger lillies. 

Always, always a joy to work with these three - thanks for the giggles and the great shoot! -MEJ
