This was the photo shoot for my newborn son. I was supposed to be looking lovingly at him and instead sneezed all over him. The photographer caught it at just the right moment.



  1. The title for this photo is “Just Married — Nine November Nieces and Nephews!” (There were ten, but one ran out of the shot!)

  2. Everyone is wanting me to send this pic in a contest. I am blown away with comment. The young man was trying to pic the baby up and she fell over.
