This is the story of a NICU nurse, whose precious babe needed a NICU stay, albeit a short one. Momma was admitted at 32 weeks with low fluid levels. They kept her for a couple of days, giving her fluids, and monitoring her and baby... thankfully that helped, and bought her and him a couple more weeks of growth. But around 35 weeks, her levels were low again, and it was time for Barrett to meet his mom and dad. The c-section went beautifully, and Barrett came out pink and crying! It was a welcomed blessing for sure. And he was such a gentleman, as he kept behaving long enough for me to get photos of him and his parents in recovery before he decided to act up and need to go to the NICU.

I came back up in a couple of days, after he was settled in. Watching Hilary take care of her own baby in the NICU was something else. She maneuvered through the wires like a seasoned pro, and helped dad navigate as well. She nursed him, and they both bottle fed him. They loved on him. 

He would come home just a few days later!

Fierce. Determined. Stunning. All describe Reagan during her labor and well into her journey of Motherhood. She was, and is surrounded by strong women cheering her on every step of the way. Some of my favorite shots from this birth are the moments shared between her and her sister and mother. Reagan I am so unbelievably proud of you. How you handled labor, the grueling days that immediately followed, and now watching you rock at Motherhood. Thank you for letting me be there to love on you, support you, and bear witness to you becoming a mom. Nellie is precious and she's so blessed to call you hers!

Each birth is different. It's like they come in all colors, in all moods. Marlena was a quiet warrior, the day was peaceful, the mood was light yet covered in anticipation. She and Johnny were surrounded by the love of family and friends. The time was passed laughing, telling stories, and making sure Marlena was comfortable and rested. And even with quiet labors, somehow, we all seem to come roaring into parenthood. Some with exhalations of pain and relief, and others like Marlena and Johnny with laughter and tears. What a joy it was standing by their side, and sharing the bedside with her mother as she watched her daughter become a mother. I mean, how is this even my job?! The blessings I am privy to are beyond measure. Thank you Marlena and Johnny. Hutch is perfection!

What is better than birth photos set to sweet music? Adding video. The element of movement and sound elevate the mood and the memories to a whole different level. I've been dabbling, and learning over the past year, and finally feel confident in my new skill set to officially offer a video fusion collection to my birth stories. You can click HERE for more information. I hope you enjoy! Katie and Paul, where do I start?! Your love and support for one another was something to behold. Katie, you made natural labor look too easy. You were a vision of strength, and grace wave after grueling wave of contractions. And Paul, I watched you look at Katie like she was the most gorgeous woman in the world. Thank you for inviting me into your lives, it was an honor to be by your sides.
