Tonight I had the honor of photographing a birth. I’m still on an adrenaline high! Everything happened so fast, even the nurses were amazed. I feel like a timeline is in order here…because, seriously, this baby surprised everyone!
8:16 – I get a text Emily and Taylor are on the way to the hospital, I tell them to let me know what the nurses say and when I should head out
9:08 – Emily gets in the room and texts me the room number
9:20 – I arrive
9:24 – the midwife arrives
9:32 – Emily gets in the birthing tub
9:37 – baby boy is caught by mom and enters the world
Blink. of. an. eye.
In all the chaos, no one even checked to see if it was a boy or girl…and I just LOVED Taylor’s reaction when he found out he had a SON! It was awesome.
I think one of the couple’s favorite things was calling all their family and hearing them all say “you had the baby ALREADY!?!?!?”
Taylor and Emily, thank you so much for your trust and allowing me to be a part of one of the fastest births in history! Enjoy your sneak peek and get some rest!
