It is with the greatest of pride that I introduce to you, our newest granddaughter Cecilia Elyse Jump, being tenderly cared-for by her 3-1/2 year old big sister, Aurora Jean Jump.
Cecilia Elyse was born at 1:05 AM on February 11, 2014 in Walnut Creek, CA USA.
I cannot take credit for this wonderful and tender photo. David captured it on the day of Cecilia'a birth. The picture truly tells the story. Aurora had been excitedly waiting for the big day, as well, and the love just flows from this wonderful capture!
In a few days I will present a collage of images taken by Lyndsy and David...Barbara and I are grandparents for the fifth time now, and we could not be more proud! Sure wish I were there, but "Grandma Barbara" has been there and is loving it :-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
