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.

15 July 2014, Tuesday

Katie wanted some photo prints of her and I together for a crafts project.

As I worked the online order at Costco, Katie saw the option to have them mailed to us. She wanted to do that, and I was curious what it would cost to save us the trip.

I tried it, and it's free to have them mailed to you, promised in about a week.

For a total of three dollars, we have a couple dozen prints on their way to us.

Of course Katie thought we could go to our mailbox right now to get them, and didn't quite get it when I said we'd have to wait. She then thought that "wait" meant later this afternoon.

I ordered three sets of 6 prints. One was for Katie, one for me and one to send to my mom.

I got curious if I could order a set and have them sent directly to my mom, saving me having to repackage the third set and mail it at my expense. I ordered another set for a total of 85¢, including free shipping.

That was easy!
