Just 13 hours old, and she was already the star in our photographs. We didn’t take our video camera into the delivery room (I wouldn’t allow it!) but Daddy had the camera at the ready and took some precious shots of Sophie after she had just entered the world. Looking back at these photos is amazing and I am so happy that we have them to cherish. Memories fade and emotions are forgotten but through an image captured just right, we can relive those wonderful moments from our past.

I am thankful for photographs.
