The first baby of the new year, with parents at the hospital. I look forward to this assignment. It's usually a gentle reminder of exactly what photojournalists do, the basic marking of the passage of time from day to day and year to year, life and death. 2008 had a lot of that for me.
I also like this shot because it reminds me of a renaissance madonna painting, the tones of the clothes and cabinets, the bright blue heart monitor.
