College Station Birth Photographer | Nolan

As a birth photographer, I see and experience all kinds of amazing things. Not often, though, do I get to see a doctor allow a dad to deliver his first born son in the hospital setting. Forget the fact that Dad is an EMT, it was still amazing to see the doctor coaching him through this delivery as if he were an intern. My favorite part was watching his face go from pure excitement of being able to deliver his first baby (forget that it was his own son) to tears of joy in the fact that it was indeed his son and he got to be the first one to meet him and hand him over to Mom. You really have to look at the pictures to see the change of emotions. So sweet. This little guy was in a rush to make his appearance. At 37 weeks, Mom arrived at the hospital and in hours without any intervention to speed the labor process up, she was complete and ready to get the show on the road. We truly all thought that we were going to get though the night of Mom laboring on her own and then have a baby first thing in the morning. Of course, Nolan had his own agenda.

This couple was very dear to my heart allowing me to venture back to my college town to capture their birth story. Nolan was a dream to photograph when I went back for his newborn pictures. Mom got the opportunity to relax while I “stole” him and worked my magic in the other room. Thank you for letting me help you tell Nolan’s story. I will truly enjoy watching him grow!

I met this family early on in their pregnancy (before they even knew what they were having) and I couldn’t have been happier! They are such an amazing family and so fun to be around. I might say that about all of my clients, but I seriously do feel that way, especially by the time I get welcomed into the delivery room. Her birth plan didn’t go completely as expected since their son was sick and couldn’t meet baby sister until she got home. I would have loved to see Big Brother’s face as he saw his precious sister for the first time. Everything went well, though, and this family was very grateful to have avoided the c-section that was scared upon them when baby girl turned feet down late into the pregnancy. Luckily, she turned one last time before the final ultrasound and Mom was able to deliver her safely, the way she wanted to.

Thank you for allowing me to tell your story and be a big support role in your delivery. I am Blessed to have been able to meet you and your beautiful growing family. I cannot wait to see how much she grows!

Houston Birth Photographer | Elizabeth Aurora

I got an inquiry from this sweet couple when Mom was only 12 weeks along. Being in the wedding planning industry, she was on top of her game. I was so excited to meet them in person and ended up having to cut our client consult short so that I could run to a delivery. :) They were more than understanding and I ended up seeing them again shortly after to photograph a gender reveal session at their house filled with their family and friends. Such an exciting moment! As with most first moms, this Momma went past her due date, but when Aurora was ready to come, she was READY!!! Mom did awesome and her labor progressed quickly and without any assistance with pitocin. So proud of her!

I love being able to watch the love and support from Dad as he watched over Mom. Not to mention all of the tender moments and exchanges made between them once Aurora arrived. Seriously, such a sweet family.

Thank you for welcoming me in and allowing me to preserve this special time of love and growth within your family. Aurora is absolutely beautiful! (I know because so many people who follow my Facebook page have come up to me and commented on her). Welcome, Aurora, you are truly a Blessing. As with all of the babies I witness come into this world, I hope that you too one day realize just how special you are!
