To say that photographing the birth of Brooke was amazing would be downplaying it entirely. It ROCKED.
Erica’s labor was quick. By the time she called me, she’d already had her epidural, and an hour after I arrived she was already 8cm. Shortly after it is was time to start pushing. I thought for sure this little girl would be a July baby. Unfortunately, little Brooke was quite comfortable in her home and took her time coming out. (Holy 3 hours of pushing!)
My favorite part of the entire experience though, was watching their families. Everyone, and I mean everyone, showed up at the hospital and waiting in a tiny room in the middle of the night to get a sneak peek at their Granddaughter/Neice. What an amazing support system in this family.
Erica and Dave are graciously letting me share Brooke’s birth with all of you and I am so greatful! I hope you enjoy it.
I truly truly love what I do. I am allowed to capture things and people that would normally go undocumented. I can experience and then share wonderful experiences. Thank you B family for letting me document your miracle. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl.
And just for fun, here is a little peek at what’s to come.
