Side by Side

This image was made the day after Christmas with Sparky on the bed and Kate on the bed, too.  He’s not even four months old and it seems like he’s almost halfway as big as Kate.  On the first exam with Dr. Ball, our pediatrician, he estimated that Sparky would grow to be about 6 …

Kate rips open one of her birthday gifts while seated on her comfy Princess chair, another birthday gift.  She’ll have her big party this coming weekend.  Naturally the theme will be princesses for the girls and super heroes for the little boys.  Luckily Kate has her closet full of choices since Granny Moira made every …

Busy Halloween Day

We had a fantastic Halloween weekend. Kate dressed up as Cinderella, wearing a dress hand-made by Granny Moira in S. Africa. But after Nicki bought a witch hat as a last-minute costume for the party hosted by Jason and Jodi, Kate had to get a miniature witch hat, too.  She of course wore it as …

Happy Halloween!

Coming home from a portrait last weekend, I noticed a huge spider and web near the house and saw the moon rising. I could visualize a photo of the two elements together, but how to make it? I grabbed the six foot ladder at the house and climbed up most of the way in order …

Baby Matthew at Home

A few images of the baby at home yesterday — 10 days old!!  He’s also been getting much attention from his big sis Kate, and may have picked up a little cold from her.  So much different than the experience of child birth and the first ten days were with Kate.

Kate Meets Sparky/Matthew | 9 • 15 • 09

Kate couldn’t wait to meet her new little brother, even though she was a bit disappointed that Sparky wasn’t the little baby girl she had hoped for.  You’d never know it for the minute she saw him, she couldn’t wait to hold him. My Mom who is visiting us and helping us for a month …

Matthew Paul Gero born 9/14/09 | 9:48 PM PST | Laguna Hills, CA

A few images from today’s little adventure — the birth of our son!  Nicki experienced some pain from contractions and thankfully was able to receive an epidural which made the delivery MUCH easier than Kate’s birth.  Mom and baby are resting comfortably tonight and we’re grateful for the wonderful care from Dr. Koperek and the …
