7.12.10 in pictures

my cousin lacey is a ridiculously great photographer, and conveniently lives in colorado springs just south of denver. when she heard i'd be having jack here, she asked if she could come shoot the birth story. um, yes please! come on down.

since he was so late we didnt know if it would work out -- between my due date and delivery date, she went on a camping trip with her fam and took a final for nursing school, plus she has two cute little girlies of her own -- but when we called her early in the morning on the way to the hospital she was totally game and arrived an hour later.

i'm so glad she did! i love having these photos to remind me of that crazy, special day. thanks lace! enjoy:

I'm NOT about to go back and do it all again, but I must say that I love birth photography. Would love to have those moments captured. I certainly did NOT have the camera to my eye when I was trying to breathe and push and get put back together. You will treasure these forever.

PRICELESS! I love these pics, Lynds. I am so glad you had your cousin come and do that...now I am tempted to get me a photographer :), seeing as how they turned out so classy ;)

And yeah, sweetest pic of the day is the one of you holding Baby J looking at him.
