I am lucky enough to photograph this little one everyday. She brings me joy beyond comparison and for that I am very thankful.
Grandpa saves the day and the bubble maker.
One week ago the latest miracle in life, Brooke, arrived. Mom and Dad are so loving and I am so grateful to them for trusting me with taking photos of their little angel.
Someone got a new lens…any guesses? I love my new 50mm 1.8 lens and have already noticed a big difference in my photos. Right off the bat its shallow depth of field is awesome. It’s my first prime lens but not my last.
What is it about dandelions that are so intriguing to the little ones? Every weed we pass on our walk she finds beauty and must tear then hold and then watch as the tiny seeds are whisked away effortlessly by the breeze. The concentration in her eyes is precious. The fact she finds beauty in weeds is fascinating.
When Mommy told me we are pregnant it took a few days for me to fully absorb the news. I realized that you were a blessing. Once I saw your heart beat at seven weeks old, my whole demeanor changed and I knew you were meant to be. I never realized life started so soon. It was my “Ah Hah!” moment. When I saw my babys little heart beat I got emotional. The following week I held my breath when the doctor couldn’t find your heart beat…then…there you were…I got emotional again. I was so happy. Everytime I would see you in an ultra sound, I just became the happiest man alive.
Yesterday, Daddy heard your heart beat for the first time. Though I’ve been able to feel you move for the past few months, I was a bit emotional (yes, again). Everyday and every time I feel your presence, it becomes more of a reality and just what a miracle you actually are. I hope I will be able to show you how in love I am with you and I hope I make you proud. In watching your development you have already made me proud. Early this morning, while Mommy was sleeping, I wrapped my arm around her belly and at first you were quiet but then you began to wake and started moving and kicking. It was as if you knew I was here and you wanted to play.
I want you to know something about your Mother. She is the finest woman you will ever meet. You will want to listen to her because she is very wise. I also want you to know that I love your Mom very much and I will do anything for her because she deserves it. Your Mom adds so much to my world and I am very grateful.
Good night for now, my Angel. I love you, Daddy.
