tribe rokker porter




























born february 7th, 2009, 1:43 pm. at 6lbs he was so small he looked like all body and no legs! we weren't there until a few hours after the birth....and the natural light was gone (boo), but I still think we got some adorable photos despite the harsh overhead lighting. listen to me!! complaining about lighting! what is my problem?! A BABY WAS BORN! I think I was a bit of a holding hog, and grant was getting funny ideas about me being more ready for kids than I let on.....one big decision at a time please!

tribe we love you and already miss you! all day yesterday I would keep randomly asking grant, "where's the baby?"....and after he responding a million times, "I know, you miss him...he's in orange county"....he finally stopped responding, but I kept asking, "where's the baby?". I couldn't help myself. I love myself some newborn baby.

Great pictures. I'm sure you've heard this before, but your man reminds me of Owen Wilson!

Rach, your birth portraits are sincerely some of the most intimate and emotional photography I've ever seen. I'm at a loss for words... again...

my 'friend' can't wait for you to shoot hers. i've told her how extremely talented you are.

i echo noelle about making us almost baby-hungry (even though if you had heard me ranting the other day to my husband about never having another...)

but seriously. you have captured these spectacular first moments incredibly. i love to write, and when i had belén, i thought, there are absolutely no words to describe this kind of [pain] and joy.

but your intimate pictures of newborns and new mothers are right there... you are so talented.
