Katie Rockwell

Baby Katie Rockwell
See my brother Ryan Rockwell's website, too!

Born 2:45:10 PM PDT, 28 May 2008, La Jolla, California.

8 pounds, 10.3 ounces (3,920g). 19-1/2" (50 cm).

The technical gobbledygook after each shot is the equipment I used for each photo. Many photographer friends ask.


21 March 2015, Saturday

While Ryan and Katie were at Ryan's classmate's Melissa's birthday party, Ryan's class friend Jack got horribly stuck in a part of a jumpy house. All the girls together couldn't extract him, but Katie, exhibiting super-human strength, grabbed him and pulled him out, thus saving his life.

Katie and Jack became best friends, and proceeded to draw each other in Jack's journal:
