Ethan, my first inspiration.

In May 2008 my world changed and shifted in a marvelous way. My son was born and made me a mom. I took thousands of photos of Ethan over the first few months. I wish that I could go back in time and tell myself to learn how to properly take his picture so I had better quality photos to look back on, but I have what I have. That said I don’t think these are terrible for a point and shoot camera being handled by a complete novice. I should also add that Ethan dealt with jaundice that lingered for quite a long time. He really was as yellow/orange looking as the photos depict.

Minutes after he was born.

When I decided to set this up I knew I would end up editing each photo. One to make them better and two because I need the practice.

I have loved this little boy with all my heart from the moment I knew he was on board. I hope that my love comes through loud and clear in his photos.
