Day 24 assignment: where.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Where I met my first two children. A study in contrasts.

#1: in an operating room, unfortunately. He was breech, but healthy.


#2: at home, in a planned waterbirth with a midwife, my husband, a doula, my parents and my son. No, it wasn’t weird; it was wonderful. Yes, it hurt. And yes, I would do it again.

So here’s a Facebook photo of my oldest. Pretty much the same as Day 22: he’s barely tolerating me and the camera.

Day 22 assignment: portrait.

Aahhhhh. The portrait. Specifically head and shoulders. Now this is something I can do in my sleep. Stick a camera in my hand, set it to manual, and I guarantee of all the photo possibilities, I will take someone’s portrait. It’s the eyes, really. I love focusing on them and isolating my subject from the background. Because when it all comes down to it, people are what matter.

And these little people matter to me.

He wasn’t thrilled with the portrait session, but I think he embodies “Minnesota” here: stoic, warmly dressed, patiently putting up with someone who is obviously not from these parts.

And she put up with me because, well, she doesn’t really have a choice. Until she can get up and run away from me, she’s all mine. And besides, the camera loves her.
