Sorry things have been so eerily quiet on the blog front, we’ve had some very happy events to attend followed by a pesky flu bug. Here’s the big news: on Sunday morning I was fortunate enough to witness the birth of our beautiful niece, Jordan Rose. Things progressed so fast that I barely made it in time to panic about which lens to throw on. I was the only one present in a panic though, my sister and brother in law were simply amazing as Jordan entered the serene and loving warmth of their living room. The same room where the family gathered to receive her just a few hours later, the same room where she will eventually crawl, run around, jump on all the furniture, and most certainly break a lamp or something. We can’t hardly wait.
In the mean time we are enjoying her smallness: she was born at 7 pounds, 6 ounces and the family is doing great. I might be a little biased but I just think she’s so perfect. You’ll just have to trust me when I say that the photos I took during Jordan’s birth and immediately following are the most precious I have ever taken, they couldn’t be more dear to me. Mel Brooks will tell you that its good to be the King but I say its good to be the Photographer.
Here are photos of Jordan appropriate to share here, taken within an hour of her birth:
And one with perhaps her greatest admirer, her dog Rembrandt, taken later that day:
Believe me… there will be more pictures of Jordan and her family in the weeks to come!
