The first photo of our daughter Billie and I made it while she wasn't even completely born yet.

For me personally this is the most important photo of my life. It's like all these years I have been practicing just to make this one single shot work.

My girlfriend, Barbara, was amazingly strong both before and while she was giving birth and I'm just incredibly proud of her. She's awesome, nothing less.

So why this title? Well, not because I think she's going to be a movie or a rock star, but because she will be *my star*, forever, and I'm pretty sure she'll have about a million photos by the time she's grown up. :)
