The Day You Were Born Birth Story Book

It’s been a wild and wooly Spring and early Summer with us moving and kids being home, but I thought I’d start catching up on posts! First, I wanted to celebrate my middle son’s (and my first pregnancy) Birthday with this incredibly cute “The Day You Were Born” album we made for Micah to give him when he became a big brother! I also offer them to my birth clients with changes for first babies or subsequent stories. He loved it and enjoys thumbing through it, especially on his Birthday. I can’t believe it was seven years ago today he came into the world. Full of drama, tears, blood, sweat, and with my heart exploding with love, joy, and anticipation. I love you sweet and dear boy. I almost wish I could freeze you right at this age between little boy and pre-teen. You still ask for snuggles. You can work your dimple and eye lashes (the best gift you got of your father’s) for just about anything you want. You have a witty sense of humor and have started becoming a little sneaky.

The Birth of Olive June

I got a text from Amanda around 9:00pm on March 18th that her water had broken and she expected contractions to start soon as they had with  her previous births. She tended to have pretty quick labors. I loaded my gear into the car, texted my sitter to come first thing in the am so Jason could go to work, got dressed… and slept in my clothes. I woke up every 30 minutes or so to check my phone, but still nothing. Until 6:07 am when she called and sounded so calm. I made a quick cup of coffee and was out the door in under 3 minutes. What took place from that point on was pure…amazing. There is simply nothing like being present as life is ushered into the world. This mama was so brave, so broken, so….inspiring to me the way she labored. This Dad, wow… I always lose it when the Dads tear up. At one point I even heard Amanda say, “this is hard for them” talking about Justin.

“We did it. The Lord is faithful. He made us both brave,” she said. If you are friends, family, or a potential client wanting to see this birth video, just shoot me a line for the password!

Snow and Fur Mini-Session {with my own kids!}

It’s so incredibly rare I get to photograph my own kids. You know… Cobbler’s Son and all. And when I do, it often doesn’t go perfectly smoothly. You know… kids don’t always behave as well for their own parents as the photographer. But WOW! I’m so thrilled to have these photos of my own precious boys. I got a wild hair to do a fur themed snow-day mini-session right in our front yard. I got it all set up then brought the kids out, Micah first, then Hayden when he woke up from nap. They both lasted only a few  minutes, but shockingly, I got something! Yay!

I feel like they *might* be the last photos of Micah looking like he still has at least a trace of little boy in him. I hope I’m wrong, but six has gone by entirely too quickly.

10 minutes max (maybe more like 6 minutes?) and Hayden was most definitely “ALLLLL DONE!”

The Birth of Baby Brynnlee {Alliance Hospital}

This little patriot was born on President’s Day, although I know her mama was ready on Valentine’s Day! I checked in with Dad around 1pm and he said mama was going to try and rest for a while and was at a 5 and would let me know if anything changed. An hour and a half later I started getting antsy and intuition told me I was leaving no matter what he said and would chill in the waiting room if I needed to, and right as I was getting in the car he texted and said she was just checked and at 10cm. The wise nurse Betty let mama labor down for another hour or so and at 5:02 it was pushing time. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen someone smile so much during pushing. Kim is just a gorgeous lady and motherhood certainly looks good on her. Welcome to the world sweet Brynnlee! I can’t wait to shoot your newborn photos later this week!
