When Kellie was born I was able to capture some really nice moments. I caught her first breath, her bath and the reactions of siblings to seeing her for the first time. It was amazing, and reminded me why i love photography. Catching the moment that comes once is such an incredible opportunity. You can’t stage moments like this, your have to live them and just execute the creation of lifelong memories. I guess as a mentor says, know your gear and don’t worry about what you don’t have available. If you know what you can do, you’ll watch, anticipate and execute inside those limits without thinking. You’ll be forced to compose a photo and that makes you a better photographer. I know it worked for me that day one month ago!
