Let me just say, I adore babies. I have always been fascinated by birth and pregnancy and little tiny humans. God is so creative and detailed in His work!
I was thrilled when Lauren and Jorge reached out and asked me about photographing sweet Hadley's entrance into the world! I had the privilege of documenting their first baby's birth and I am so thankful they asked me to capture their second baby's birth, too!
Lauren was scheduled for induction Monday, September 26. Even though I knew she was being induced, I could not sleep the night before! I was so excited and anxious about this sweet baby's birth and wanted to make sure I was there on time and ready to photograph this special occasion!
Lauren kept me up to date all morning with every detail. I was ready to go (and had been for over a week with my bags and equipment ready, waiting for THE call!). As soon as she hit 5 cm, I headed to the hospital. They were surrounded by Lauren's family and the room was full of excitement as everyone was preparing to meet sweet Hadley.
Shortly after I arrived, it was time. Time for baby Hadley's arrival! She moved from 5 cm to 10 cm in less than two hours! Hadley was ready to meet her mommy and daddy!
Two pushes. Literally. Two. Meet precious Hadley, world. She is beautiful!
Congratulations to Lauren and Jorge and to Big Brother Grayson! Hadley is beautiful!!
I am so grateful for the opportunity to document the most amazing event ever! Birth photography is incredible and it makes me fall in love with my job even more!
