I Heart Faces - Best January Pic

|
The theme for this week's I Heart Faces contest is the best face photo you've taken in January 2011. I looked back at my calendar to remind myself of what shoots I'd done and had several to choose from. Then I remembered baby Gabe! I had the privilege of going into the operating room with a good friend of mine and capturing the first few moments of her son's life! I had been back behind the curtain the whole time and figured that is where I would stay. I had no idea that the doctor would call me over when they were pulling him out. I didn't even have time to adjust my settings on my camera, I just ran around and saw him make his entrance into the world! Tear immediately came to my eyes and it was such a wonderful moment! I had to choose this photo as my I Heart Faces entry for this week!
