I met Kelly when I was working at Phoenix – TEN YEARS AGO! I had a picture hanging up on the wall in the clinic – an older woman and her dog walking away from the camera – in Central Park. That picture stuck with her – and she emailed me about photographing their journey to parenthood!
She was due July 8th – and on June 24th – I got back in my car after a morning session to see a missed call from her. I called her back and her mom let me know that she was at 10 cm. I wouldn’t make it – but I could still come and do after the birth pictures. As fate would have it – Jared was off that day because he was playing in a golf tournament and then wasn’t need after all. I called Jared to let him know that I’d be going – and hopefully – making the birth!
I got there right before 11 – with no baby yet!
Kelly was SO calm.
I wasn’t able to be right up by her head for THE moment – but I did capture it!
A sweet baby girl!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!!
Kelly & Wade – thank you SO much for asking me to witness this MIRACULOUS time in your lives!
It was an absolute honor to capture her birth for you! I can’t wait to spend this next year watching her grow with you!
