One of my favorite things to photograph and I wish I did more, are births. This one was very special because this is my best friends sister and her new niece…so I was tasked with a very special mission of whispering in her ear minutes after birth just how much her Auntie loved her!!
I received the text that Mandie was a 10 and thank goodness I live 5 mins from the hospital. I arrived to a very calm mom and dad and a dark empty room…apparently everyone was laid back about the fact she was 10cm, except me…who showed up in my pj pants lol! Mandie was a pillar of strength and the birth went quickly and at 10pm we welcomed a perfect baby girl into the world! I had the honor of capturing this little ones first hour of life as she bonded with mom and dad and met big sister for the first time.
