The Birth of Adalae

It was a beautiful Wednesday evening, and I had just finished hosting our church's community group at our house with hot dogs and Smore's! I put my little ones in the bath and sat down for a few minutes, then I got a message. Just the words I had been expecting all week,  "We are in the delivery room". I rushed and changed my clothes, and headed to the hospital! Entered through the ER and told the lady behind the desk that I was going to the birth center. She directed me to the proper doors and then asked "It's not for you right?". Being 21 weeks pregnant myself, I was certain to let her know that I was just there to document a birth :) 

I made it up to the room and checked in to see how mom was doing. She looked beautiful and some of her family members were there to keep her laughing and distracted from the contractions. It was about 9:30pm and in just over 3 hours later sweet baby Adalae made her way into the world. Mom was focused with Dad by her side, and did such an amazing job! It was such an honor to be apart of this special moment. It is truly my favorite type of photography!

Enjoy the photos below!

I first met little Max when he was minutes old! I had the honor of capturing his first moments right after he entered the world. He was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and will be having his first craniofacial surgery tomorrow morning, so his momma contacted me to get a few photos of his adorable smile before they repair his lip.  I just love his expressions!!

Little Max we will be praying for you tomorrow and hope your recovery is fast and easy!
