Last year, I photographed Gabriel’s entrance into the world. Poor mama was in so much pain and Gabriel’s labor still holds the record of the longest birth I’ve attended!! But after all of the pain, tears and discomfort, their sweet boy was born and love just radiated from them both. Of course, I was so thrilled when they contacted me a few months ago to let me know they were expecting baby number 2, a girl, and they wanted me to shoot her birth! What a wonderful honor to be invited again to capture that amazing journey for them. Mom labored and delivered this time at a birth center – and it was so much more relaxing! Almost makes me want to have another baby JUST so I can deliver there ;]
After just a few hours, Eliana was born in the water and that moment never gets old. Seeing these babies take their first breath takes my breath away.
And then, I got to see them again for her newborn portraits!! Little Gabriel isn’t too sure about his little sis yet, hah!! Love this family!!
