    I haven't posted in a while.

    Well, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our newest member in
    the family. My nephew should be born any minute now...but last night
    was kind of a dry/practice run since they ended up sending her home.

    I really should have gotten pictures at the Mexican Food restaurant
    afterward, but I was too hungry by that time.

    I will be taking pictures in the birthing room as he is born, so I am really
    freaking out about the opportunity. I am shooting the whole thing in
    black and white only. Should be fun. Heh.


    Waiting...

    Really nice! I like the photojournalistic angle. I would love to see some one where she is screaming when the time comes...just not all the gross stuff LOL.

    Thanks for all of the compliments!!

    She asked me to be in the room when he is born. I will attempt to capture
    some of the emotion in the room during the birth without capturing the
    actually, bloodbath of birth. I want the first breath... really badly. :)
