I always liked babies. They’re cute, funny and so innocent. Thankfully, photography exists, so you can record every little step they do while they grow. Here’s a little story about the most beautiful baby in the world: My daughter Amelia, the LomoBaby!
Babies are beautiful. So small, lovely, innocent and fragile. You look at them and you think about wonders of life and universe: how a small living being can change your way of living and what you know about anything.
This was something I realised 7 months ago, when my daughter was born. Her name is Amelia Solange. When I held her in my arms for the first time, I couldn’t think of anything else but her. It was a new chapter of my life that began on January 9th, the happiest day of my life.
Being a dad and carrying on with all these new responsibilities are tough. I spent almost 2 months sleeping less than 4 hours a day! I started to lose weight (and hair). However, every morning when I wake up, the first thing I see is her, sleeping on her crib, and all of a sudden my worries are gone. The best thing is: I always have a camera with me, so I can record how she gets bigger and more beautiful every day!
I like to travel with my wife a lot, and having a baby hasn’t stopped us from keep doing it. We have traveled to the beach, mountains, new cities and even new countries. We went to Perú 4 months ago, it was a nice trip. We even went to the Lomography Embassy Store at Lima, Perú!
The best thing about our baby: her smile. The amount of “Awww!” we get every day is impressive. Here’s the reason why:
I remember well how my life was before her, and I can’t think of a new life without Amelia. I hope I can be the best father in the world because she deserves it!
