Case's Birth Story

August 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Birth photography is something I really want to specialize in, but everybody has to start somewhere. From not photographing a single birth-- to photographing TWO in one week! I feel so blessed beyond words! I had just spoke to Case's mom in the morning and she said she didn't feel anything but ordinary that morning and was very discouraged... (a week and a half overdue by now)! Just as I thought I would go about my day, I get a text message "Pretty sure I am in real labor now." I hopped in my van immediately as I knew she is known for having quick deliveries. It took me about 20 minutes to get to her house... and this is exactly how I found her when I showed up!

I was beyond disappointed that I had missed the birth completely. She had him SO fast, her husband barely made it there to deliver him. I beat the midwife to her house but that didn't change the fact that I had JUST missed the birth by a few minutes :/ Although I missed the actual birth, I did get some great shots of the family shortly there after and then soaking up the joy of having the first BOY in the family!! Big boy at that-- 9lbs and 11oz! Thank you so much Sarah and Bart for having me over that day :)
