I get so excited for every birth that I have scheduled to capture. about a month before baby's due date, I start making plans to have my sitters arranged, phone gets turned up and put under my pillow at night, I make sure I have no plans that can't be rescheduled and then I wait. I received this call around 10pm that the mother had been admitted, so my on call sitter (my awesome mother) came over to spend the night with my kiddos. Around midnight the new mother to be was at 7 cm. So I made the 5 min drive to the hospital and spent the night. Sweet baby Luke arrived that morning after a long labor. What a beautiful, emotional time for this new family and I had the privilege of witnessing and capturing these beautiful images that they can cherish for a lifetime.
