The Birth of Whitten

From the very first time we met, this beautiful mama was incredibly organized and efficient in her planning for baby. In fact, every single one of our three sessions ended up falling within two weeks of one another. Maternity, then two weeks later birth, then two weeks later newborn. Clockwork!

So, it was no surprise to me when her labor progressed at a relatively quick, steady pace, delivering her precious baby boy Whitten after just a handful of pushes.

Obviously this is a little tongue in cheek, as none of us can plan when or how we go into labor, but it was such a fitting day for this incredible family as they welcomed their first baby into the world. I am so grateful to have been a part of it.

She is probably going to be thoroughly embarrassed by all the praise I am about to heap on her, but nonetheless:

This mama oozes love for her family out of every bit of her being.

You can see it in every image. It is woven throughout their entire slideshow. The way she looks at her husband, her parents, her eldest child, and her brand new daughter...

It shows in her generous smiles; in the look of contentment she has in her role as mother of two, in the way she still breathes in the smell of her toddler son's hair.

She is one of the most beautiful women I know inside and out, and I was so, so honored to be there to capture these once in a lifetime moments. Enjoy these images from the birth of Emerson Kate!

Oh this mama...

I adore her so much. She is so real, and so strong, and so loving. You may notice that I have a larger-than-average number of photos of this beautiful laboring mother, but only because, well, she was just so beautiful. Baby boy ended up having to be delivered via c-section, but I loved being able to be there as she was laboring to get him down. You can see so much in the first few photos...pain, strength, peace, focus, support.

I just love them all.

Welcome to the world baby Malcolm! You looked so much like your brother on the day you were born, and I am anxious to watch you two become best friends!
