I had so much fun shooting Brittany and Mike’s maternity session and was super looking forward to meeting miss Madden and shooting her newborn session once she arrived. But Britt and Mike had another idea and during dinner after we left the beach, they asked if I’d photograph her birth. Of course I said yes!  Birth stories are one of my most favorite things to do<3 So we chatted for a bit and it was set. Brittany was scheduled to be induced, I got it right into my calendar and all was peaceful and calm and right in the world. Buuuuut…..Madden was not having any of this planning nonsense. The Friday before the scheduled induction, Brittany’s fluid was lower than the doctors like and she was admitted. This was followed by nerve-racking day of questioning whether or not Madden would arrive while I was shooting a wedding, and then finally…on Sunday afternoon, Miss Madden Nancy made her big debut and met her two amazing parents for the very first time<3

I think I have had a total of five hours sleep in the past 24+ hours, but it was definitely worth it. So, I love love love photographing newborns, but a month ago I found myself wanting to do more and photograph a live birth. Within an hour of posting this desire on my Facebook page, I was chatting with Sarah about doing just that:)  I first met Sarah around this time last year at the gym, and my Izzy and her oldest are in the same kindergarten class. Even with these little connections, we still didn’t know each other all that well, so I was over the moon when she said she would be totally comfortable with me in the delivery room for baby Jase. I am happy to say that both mom and baby are doing amazing and are as happy and healthy as can be. Baby Jase was born at 4:14 this morning weighing in at 7lbs 2 oz and measuring just a little over 19 inches long <3
