This is my baby’s first baby. My son was so worried about what kind of father he would be. I told him that love is something that develops as you tend to the child and that it would naturally grow. Watching him, I realize that isn’t always true. He has been enraptured with his son since the beginning. He spends all his free time over at his ex’s home, to be with the baby rather than her. He even changes diapers.

I love the expression on Jimmy’s face here! It speaks more than words could. I cropped and then used a Nik Photography filter in Photoshop CS to darken the edges of the image. I wanted to take away everything in the background that was a distraction.

EDIT (June 11, 2011): I just got my large card of this in the mail today. The print quality is fantastic and I couldn’t be more pleased with RedBubble’s work and speed of delivery!

    What a priceless moment indeed. A beautiful photo of love at it’s best.

  • Thank-you! I’m not very experienced in taking people pictures, so I wasn’t expecting much. We also had Andrew’s sisters climbing all over the bed while I was trying to take pictures. I had a lot of really fuzzy and unspectacular ones to go through and was really surprised when I saw this.
