Last Thursday morning at 3:00 AM my wife woke me up with these five very distinct words that had the effect of a lightning bolt in my brain “I think my water broke!”

Yes, he was on his way and a week early! Planned C-section my ass, it’s happening now daddy-O :)

I took maybe 5-6 pictures during the surgery but this was the one that coincided with the realization that my life would never be the same again… and thank God for that! This is my son Mathéo at around 9:20 AM, the love of my life.

Technical data, because I’m a geek:

Canon 5d, 28mm 1.8, converted to bw in Silver Efex pro 2.0
