I’ll never forget the very first time I met Tiffany B. I was at orientation for my very first teaching job the day before my wedding. I was standing in the hallway and I heard a student talking to one of the other teachers about their new teacher named Mrs. Lamb. ”Who is “Mrs. Lamb” she asked in a very inquisitive tone. My ear perked up at the question because I recognized “Lamb” as the last name of the man I was to marry the next day. I thought it was quite a remarkable coincidence…so remarkable, in fact, that I completely tuned out to the other teacher trying to get my attention so that she could introduce me to Tiffany. When I finally came back to Earth, I met Tiffany…a girl I knew I’d never forget. She was the first to call me Mrs. Lamb, and it wasn’t even my name yet! An interesting addendum to the story is that of all the students I taught in my 5 years of being a high school social studies teacher, Tiffany probably has the hardest time being allowed to call me “Amanda” (instead of Mrs. Lamb).
When she told me that she’d be thrilled to allow me (and my camera!) into her delivery room, I was ecstatic. I’d been wanting to photograph a birth ever since I met the amazing Charlotte Geary for coffee one night, and she mentioned that she was on call to photograph a birth. I was instantly intrigued! I’ve, of course, had two children of my own, but I had never actually seen a child be born. It was TRULY an amazing experience, and I’m so very grateful that Tiffany allowed me to be a part of her sweet baby girl’s birth.
Tom Petty was so right…the waiting sometimes really IS the hardest part. So true for these excited ladies!
Thank you SO much Tiff! You’re an amazing mama!
