Shelly called me two weeks from her due date inquiring about a newborn portrait session.   She mentioned wanting maternity photos as well but that it was probably too late for that.  My response was, It’s not too late until the baby is here!  So we scheduled her maternity session a couple of days later.  When I answered the door that evening she and her husband Michael had some rather exciting news.  Her water broke on the way to my house!!  Whaatt?!?!  I assumed they would want to cancel the session and head straight to the hospital.  Nope.  When you get your nails, hair, AND makeup done you get the photos done.  Then you head to the hospital.

Shelly and Michael were the coolest cats.  He gently and lovingly rubbed her back as we meandered around the azaleas for this 15 minute portrait session.  As soon as we were wrapped up they headed straight for the hospital where they discovered she was already 6 cm dilated!!  6 cm!!  She had been in labor all day and didn’t know it.  She mentioned only that she had been having back pain all day but it wasn’t severe and just kept on moving.  They welcomed their son into the world five hours later.  The same day these photos were taken.  His birthday was full of sun light, cool breezes, and azaleas everywhere.  It was a beautiful day.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Thanks for sharing these kind of wonderful articles. In addition, the best travel and medical insurance system can often eradicate those problems that come with traveling abroad. Some sort of medical emergency can shortly become very expensive and that's guaranteed to quickly put a financial stress on the family finances. Having in place the excellent travel insurance package deal prior to setting off is definitely worth the time and effort. Thank you
