Salem Photographer| Life Stories: The story of my first born.

Welcome to Life Stories, a monthly blog circle among photographers. Make sure that you click on the link at the end of this post to visit the next photographer's blog and see their life stories post. 

I was 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant with my first child.
My water broke at about 4am.
After about 18 hours of labor, followed by a c-section, 
~Kayden Ecco Ward~
was born at 9:49pm in La Grande, OR.

He was 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and 22 inches long.

We expected our baby to be bald or to have red or blonde hair, but much to our surprise he was born with a full head of dark  hair. He's the only baby of our three that looked like himself from the very beginning. Meaning, if you look at baby pictures of the other two, there's little to no resemblance to them now. Kayden, however, is easy to identify in all of his baby photos.

Please excuse the poor quality of these photos. 

And here his now...THIRTEEN YEARS OLD!
He is smart, compassionate, artistic, nice, and funny. 
He is into drawing, listening to music, playing the bass clarinet, hanging out with friends, and loves to play dodgeball.

  2. i agree he really does look like his baby picture!!! love the last one so funny!
