I've always thought I'd want a little girl (someday in the far, far future). But spending the day with Tahmures changed my mind. My friend, Rachel and her husband have raised just the sweetest little boy I've ever met. It's so obvious, even in the first moments of meeting them, what love and gentleness do for a home and for a child. Oh, and those big eyes? and that clever mouth? Absolutely undeniable.

This year I vowed to take more pictures of people, so connecting with Rachel (who is a brilliant photographer in her own right) was such a blessing. I learned a lot from these four rolls of film! Babies are squirmy and hard to catch in low-light with a slow shutter. But, I love them so much since they haven't developed a "camera face" yet. Candids every time!! That's probably why I like this one so much. Oh babies, such divas ...

    1. Kat, I fully believe you will be a bestseller in the very near future. Your dust jacket could be my big break! I'm actually going to be in San Diego to photograph a wedding in June. We have to get together!
