My friend Sierra asked if I would capture the birth of their 4th child – their 1st girl!
I was so honored and excited! She was due mid-January and we were praying that snow wouldn’t be an issue!
Her mom called me around 6:45 on Sunday the 10th – letting me know that they were heading to the hospital (an hour away) for the night – snow and ice was in the forecast and they wanted to be prepared. I left at 7 – ready for a long night sleeping on lobby couches. As I pulled off the exit from the highway – her mom called again – asking where I was. She was 9 cm and getting ready. WHAT!
I made it to the room at 8 – and that sweet baby girl was born at 8:30 after just a few beautiful pushes!
(You won’t see all the photos in this blog post – but you will still see beautiful ones!)
I mean seriously – that chubby little face!
Sierra & Jose – it’s such a beautiful thing to witness!
Thank you SO MUCH – from the bottom of my heart – for asking me to photograph Rosa’s birth – but more than that – for asking me to be there.
There’s something so miraculous about watching someone take their first breath. Thank you.
