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! 

 

Fall Family fun, a baby belly, and leaves! [Warrenton Family Photographer]

I first met this couple about 2 years ago when they were pregnant with their son. We had a fun maternity session in Old Town Warrenton and I was pregnant with my son at the time too, but didn't know the gender. It is funny to think back at how fast time has gone since then! We both have active little boys who love being outside, jumping and climbing on everything. 

The past year they have been serving as missionaries in Ghana, Africa and when they decided to come back to the US for a visit they contacted me to take some family photos. I was so excited to have the opportunity to capture these moments for them, so they can take these photos back with them to Africa.

LaDonna and Mike only have a few more months until they meet their precious baby girl, so they are enjoying this time making memories with their little guy, Frank before she makes her arrival. Enjoy these photos and leave some encouraging comments for them! So happy for you, LaDonna and Mike as your family is growing!
