15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
On Their Due Date

Sometimes it is the moments right before a big event that are the sweetest for all that they hold, the moment before the rush of emotion, the moment before things change...this is one of those precious moments and I was so thankful to be able to capture it in a few pics this morning. Big hugs to Lila Madeline Ray and Ethan Mark Ray as they enjoy time with family in the minutes (hours or days) before the arrival of our first grandchild Max! The best news? They like many 20 something kids with college loans are living upstairs back at home. So we will get to see plenty of the new baby.
