I'm not the first person to shoot this scene but how could I resist!

My wife and I were expecting our first son when it hit us that life was about to change forever.  I wouldn’t call it “panic” but we decided to take a road trip to celebrate the change that was coming.  At 8 months pregnant, we made our way north into Wyoming, my wife’s home state, and into Jackson.  It was early May and 2008 had been a record year for snowfall.  We took this shot on our final day in the Grand Teton National Park as we navigated north to Yellowstone.  Seems like the perfect way to celebrate the next phase in our lives.
