I Made the Paper

Its nothing short of unexpected that if there is a 2nd alarm fire in town that it will make the front page of the paper. Press Photographers line up the perimeter of the hose lines snapping photos of the firefighting action in hopes of capturing a great shot in time to make the morning papers.  

And where am I during these great photographing opportunities?  Why see for yourself...


That's me in the bottom left hand corner of the screen!  I am snapping photos inside the fire scene perimeter, yet safely away from any danger, thanks to the Chief's blessing.  If you look closely you'll also see that my husband is operating the turn table on top of the ladder while talking to another firefighter on the ground.  

Not only is this the first fire scene photo appearing on the front page of the paper that I've been in, but it also happens to be the first fire scene photo that both Shawn and I are in together!  Granted I am not dressed in fire gear this time, but rather a skimpy summer outfit since were relaxing at a friends BBQ when the tones went off for the fire.  

As silly as it sounds I am saving this photo for the baby book.  Part of it will be about all the adventures her and I went on even before she was born.  I want her to see that her and her momma did some pretty darned cool stuff and hope that we can keep adding to the adventures once she's here!

Not your everyday experience, that's for sure. Neat to have you both in the photo.

That is sheer awesomeness! What a fun thing to put in your babies scrapbook. Not only is it YOUR first fire scene photo on the front page or even yours and Shawn's - but it's the first photo of all three of you on the front page of the paper in a fire scene. She's just...well...a little hidden at the moment. Now THAT'S cool! :)

My children often ask me what kinds of things they did before they were born. (My son went to Austria, Germany and Czechoslovakia!) They are always so interested and start to brag to one another.... I'm so glad you are thinking ahead about those things! :)

You are hitting the big time - do you have an agent yet? Have fun, be wise and stay safe.

I agree with what 24atheart said. It's the first photo of all three of you together in the paper :-)

Now will your daughter want to be a firefighter or a photo journalist due to her pre-birth experiences?

I'm 110 percent into that newspaper article going into her baby book. I envy you collecting things for her to look at as she grows. (Happy envy!)

Very cool that your thinking about her baby book already. I didn't start collecting things besides ultrasound pictures until after they were born, but they all love to look through them and see all the things I saved.
