Black and White Photography

Alex's Newborn Pictures

Ok, I am such a slacker! It may seem odd that I am posting pictures of Alex when she was a newborn, but here is the story. When we were in the hospital with Alex, a professional photographer came around to the rooms and offered to take pictures of the newborn babies. We were already planning on having my friend take her 2 week old pictures, but since it wouldn't cost us anything, we thought that we might as well have her picture taken a the hospital. When we got home, the pictures were posted but we didn't plan on buying any of them since we were going to have her picture taken by my friend. However, our plans fell through for her 2 week old pictures and they never happened. So, I thought that it was lucky that we had the hospital take pictures. We went to purchase them, but we ran out of luck, they only posted them for 2 weeks and that's it (this was about 2 months later). I was heartbroken! I couldn't believe that I hadn't gotten any pictures of Alex as a newborn. I didn't think much of it for a while until I got a belated email saying that the photography studio that took her hospital pictures were having one last sale which ended the day that I got the email (I had gotten it earlier, but it was on an email account that I hardly ever use). I hurried and retrieved my password so that I could view the pictures and I purchased them there and then so that I wouldn't miss my opportunity again. I am so grateful that I was given one last chance to get Alex's pictures so that we can marvel how small she was forever! Here are some of the pictures and I can't believe how small she was!! Enjoy:
