Time is not a luxury afforded to me in the midst of September through December. The studio is always booked up with sessions to shoot, image retouching, reveal sessions, orders to fill and the planning of our Huge Annual Santa Event. So, to say the least when Christine called me just a few days before she was scheduled to give birth to Clara, I was swamped with work and didn't see how I could possibly photograph the birth of sweet Clara.......then she said the magic words......
"I'm scheduled for delivery on September 10th......."
It was a sign, I just HAD TO MAKE IT WORK, Clara and I now share a birthday!
So the first half of my Birthday this year was spent documenting the arrival of this precious little girl in to this Big World. She joins her amazing parents and 3 older siblings.
