Every time I look at these boys, I have to smile. They are unbelievably cute. I'm so happy I had a chance to photograph them.

I even got them to pose with their new "Tamar London Photography" t-shirts.

Welcome to the world of blogging

I've been wanting to publish a blog for over a year, and always felt too swamped to get started. I'm finally taking the plunge. I figure this will be a great way to stay in touch with all of my clients/friends. In my blog I'll share recent sessions and professional news, as well as personal stuff.

Since I'm going to share some personal things too, I will start with some terribly sad news. My best friend from childhood died during childbirth on June 23. Jennifer was a midwife in Florida. She experienced birthing pains on June 21 and went to her birthing center. She was taken to the hospital with severe signs of pre-eclampsia. She lost consciousness on the way to the OR to have an emergency C-section. She never regained consciousness. Jennifer was kept on life support for two days so that she could be an organ donor.

Lila Jennifer was born healthy and is doing well.

I can find no rhyme or reason in all of this. Jennifer was in a loving relationship and was happier than she'd ever been. She was dedicated to making the world a better place, an attitude that was reflected in everything she did - from managing a health food store years ago and her care for the environment, to her work as a midwife.

Jennifer and I had a tumultuous relationship. I loved her with all my heart and felt protective of her always; but I couldn't always be the friend she wanted me to be. We had falling out about a year ago and hadn't spoken since. I hope she knew how much I loved her, and still do...
