This post is VERY special to me. Why? Because it is some of the first photos I have taken of our son…Brayden! Yup, I had a baby on January 11th 2012. I have been waiting for this bundle of joy for a very long time. As I prepare to go to WPPI in Vegas this year I realized that it was 3 years ago that we decided we were ready to start a family. How I know that is it was 3 years ago that I went to my first WPPI convention and the convention was only 3 or 4 months after we had made that decision. We tried for a year at that time with no luck of getting pregnant. Then my hubby and I made another important decision….to leave California. We had this dream of moving to Colorado and raising our kids there. We loved the time we spent in Cali and felt like the 5 years we were there was enough for us to be able to see and do just about everything we wanted. So we put the baby thing on hold while we focused on moving to Colorado. So here we are in 2012 and our Little Buddy (as I like to call him) is here and we couldn’t be happier! His name is Brayden Samuel and he was born at 4:32am on the 11th weighing in at 8 pounds 6 ounces.
These were taken at the hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette, CO. Yes I wasn’t felling all that great afterwards, but I had to get some of our son at the hospital so my camera came with my hospital bag.
I love this one with my husbands hand on Brayden.
And some of the photos I’ve taken while we’ve been at home.
With babies, I love to capture some of the natural things they do…like crying when they are hungry.
