Ryan Christopher Burtis

Ryan Christopher was born via cesarean section at 1:23 p.m., Friday, September 3, 2010, to Chere and Michael Burtis in Everett, Washington.  He weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces and is 20 inches long.  I got to spend the evening at the hospital with Chere and Ryan and other family members.  I’m so excited to be an auntie and can’t wait to see this little guy grow up.

Things you shouldn't do while driving...

The nice thing about being stuck in traffic during sunsets is that you can photograph them if you get stopped in the right spots. I did not cause any accidents while shooting these. I did not hold up traffic either. I make no promises that I was at a full and complete stop while shooting. These are my disclaimers for the day. It was a long day. I drove to Portland, Oregon and back from Marysville, Washington to interview a subject on picture editing for my master’s project. The interview went well. Traffic on the way back did not. These are my reward.
