It is so much fun when photography connects me with someone I haven't seen in 14 years! I met Steve when we both joined the diving team our freshman year at Wheaton College. Neither of us had any diving experience. I will never, ever forget some of the beatings Steve and I both took while learning new tricks. We were covered in bruises from hitting the water wrong, but we both stuck with it all four years. So much focus and determination was required to push beyond the fear of getting a dive wrong. When we finally got it right though, the feelings of relief and hard-earned accomplishment were unbeatable.
Now you are headed into new waters Steve, and I can already sense your incredible enthusiasm and commitment. I imagine your life will now be filled with plenty of emotional thrills for you and Robyn. You both are so relaxed, it's like you've done this parenting thing before. And you wrap a killer swaddle! Congratulations on baby Amelia, she is perfect.
