This cutie didn't want to wait any longer … she was going to be born whether the photographer was there or not… she barely even waited for the midwife to arrive! A beautiful home birth … that was so quick, I missed it! I was stuck in school traffic trying to get across town when momma sent me a text.
"I think I'm ready for you to head my way. No rush though."
"Baby's already here." My heart sunk … I had never missed a birth before! I arrived shortly afterward and found out that total … I was 16 minutes too late. Or I like to say, she was 16 minutes too soon! :-) Come to find out, momma's midwife barely made it through the door before it was time to push as well!
I went straight to work photographing her first nursing session, cuddles from mom, measurements, little details, dad getting her weight and of course each grammas' reactions! One was on the road trying to get there in time and the other was dropping off lil' gals' brothers to school and didn't make it back in time!
She was ready to come out and nothing was going to stop her! I think that's a good indication of her future. She is going to be one phenomenal woman that will achieve so much because … she's going to get what she wants and nothing will stop her! ;-)
The above picture I caught real quick and new dad and his dad were chatting … I just loved this image! they look as stunned as I was when I found out how quickly baby came!
First 48 sessions include pictures of the family doing what they do best … loving one another and enjoying each other's company! But of course, we have to get a few lifestyle pictures of baby girl too!
And again, we needed to reenact another image that her brothers had with dad. Precious.
