The title of my post is a bit tongue in cheek given that I made a mad dash to make it in time for this delivery! This sweet baby girl was just taking her own sweet time in deciding when to make her appearance. I waited patiently at home for the call that her momma was getting close and instead I answered the phone to her momma's sweet voice saying " I''m so sorry this is such short notice but all of a sudden I'm complete and ready to push and the Dr is here" OH MY GOSH!! NOOOO....DON'T PUSH!! LOL! I told her that like she had a choice and the Dr was going to be ok with waiting around until I arrived! Ha!! I'm pretty sure I texted her while waiting at a red light, telling her to be a wimpy pusher for just 5 or 6 minutes longer! I raced into the room, I'm positive the nurses at the desk were laughing at me, with just enough time to get my camera ready, hop up on my chair in the corner where I like to shoot from and fire away! YAY! I'm so glad I made it! Truly this is one breathtakingly beautiful baby girl! Tho I'm sure no one is surprised by that, as her momma and sweet big sister are stunning as well! Just look at her!! She was sooooo alert and in a couple of pics I swear she is smiling at me! I know I caught her precious dimples in at least one shot!! These were such sweet moments to catch! I know I've mentioned that my most favorite thing EVER to shoot is births and this one didn't fail to disappoint me! One of the CRNA's that I work with was looking at my camera equipment and impressed asked me "now tell me with that equipment, is this a hobby or a passion?!?" BOTH!! But when it comes to birth photography it is truly a passion for it and nothing else that drives me to do it. I especially love a birth when I get to hang around and see the babies introduced to their big siblings!! I can never not be touched by those moments between new siblings in a growing family. I love watching families grow! I don't know if its because my own sisters have always meant so much to me or if its because I struggled for so many years trying to achieve my desire to grow my own family. More than likely its both, but either way I cant help but get a little misty eyed when I get to witness it. What an incredible honor and privilege to be asked to capture it!!! This sweet big sister was in one of my sibling classes and I knew from the start she would be a great big sister and boy did she prove me right!! Just look at how excited she is!! I LOVE IT! I almost always come out of every shoot with a new favorite picture....this shoot I came away with two!! Can you guess which ones they are?!?! Who ever guesses first which two pics are my new fav will receive a complementary mini session, 20 min of shooting time for up to 4 people and 5-7 fully edited digital images at the location of their choice!
