Family

Julia’s water broke at a friend’s barbecue.  Not very polite, Julia.  After some laboring, pushing was only 15 minutes and then there was Mara (vs. 2.5 hours with big brother, James).

I met her when she was about 1 month old, sweet as can be.  I have known Matt and Julia for years after photographing their engagement session, Julia’s boudoir, and wedding many years ago.
