The Rude Awakening

    Newer Older

    Luke Edward Armstrong

    I had to stay seated in a chair during the entire c-section operation (next to my wife's head), so I unable to get the exact moment Luke was "born", but this was directly after (8 years ago I stood and watched the entire process when Elliott was born, I found it fascinating, not something you get to witness first hand in your life -- ever) A very rude awakening indeed. Its his first official portrait by me ;-)

      Excellent shot, and I'm a tad jealous. My kid's mum threatened to wrap the camera round my neck if it went anywhere near the delivery suite...so well done!
