This is the story of Madyson Maxine… MadMax… whose birth we raced down to Oregon for last week, practically upon hearing of the very first contraction. Our week since then has been one of some personal trials, so as soon as I received this film today I knew that the right thing to do was to bask in the memory of being there for her amazing entrance into the world.
Leading up to her birth, the room was dark & quiet, loving & more peaceful than I could have ever imagined… and when she arrived, she let out the squeakiest little cry, and all anybody could do was laugh & cry along with her.
To my fellow film geeks out there who follow my blog (thank you!)… this set was shot with my Canon 1v & my Hasselblad H1 on Kodak TriX 400 pushed to 6400 & to 1600, respectively.
And to our dearest friends, Billy & Sarah… you two are going to be such great parents, and it was the best gift to watch you transition into parenthood with such peace & grace. We love you!
