All a bit of a shock but yesterday, 3 weeks early my first grand-daughter arrived! Having been pulled in for an emergency scan after the midwife detected that the baby had not grown in the 3 weeks since last visit my daughter`s waters broke, she started contractions and 24 hours later  our 6lb 5 oz  precious one arrived. No name yet unless you count TBC (to be confirmed in the words of my son in law). So exciting but I have both daughters in hospital just now with the other one having had surgery this week. It never rains... Seems I`m not allowed to go on facebook or post pictures on the net yet but the collection will grow after my first visit today.  :) :) :)

Congratulations  :)  Grandpa Paul  ;D

She`s absolutely gorgeous (no bias here) and will no doubt be the new subject of many of my photos. Not sure how many I`ll be allowed to put online though.

Congratulations Paul. Glad all went well. Must have been a bit of a panic to start with.

Hope your other daughter is doing well too.

Yes she`s picking up thanks R. Not well enough to get out and see the new baby yet though  :(

I`m allowed to share just one pic of little Jessica for now which I`ve sent to friends. We`re sparing her facebook. 3 days old , asleep whenever I`ve seen her and I already have around 100 pictures  :)

Did my first proper shoot for ages with my trusty D700. felt so heavy after using my xt 100 for a while but for my granddaughter i wanted  decent lighting so had to use my Nikon gear rather than bank on the high iso perfomance of the fuji or using on camera flash. Wasn`t given a lot of time so had to suffice with one off camera flash to supplement daylight  but reasonably happy with what I got. of course my daughter will hate every one she is in as she never likes to see herself on pictures and is obviously tired in these first days of motherhood and breastfeeding through the night. My personal favourites are what I`ll tell her are the Lion King Simba shots with the newborn Jessica held above my son in laws head.

Great shots posted Jinky. Shame your granddaughter isn't going to enjoy them until she is a mother herself, as they are revealed to all and sundry through the years as she grows up.  8)

Thanks Oldboy. At least we kept them clothed. I did say it would be a relaxing shoot with no hassle from me and then said "Ok everyone tops off" but got no encouragement for the arty nude set!

I particularly like the 'baby as Christmas cracker' shot :tup:  :legit:

Got a series of those - one with her holding 2 fingers up to the photographer which is my favourite shot. My  moniker will be "Poppa Paul" until she comes up with her own version of whatever she will call me. Me and Sue are besotted with regular excuses to pop over and see them taking food, camera etc. We`ve even held off booking holidays!
