Ivy [birth story]

I adore the Leavitt family- not only are they are an amazing couple, but they were my very first wedding clients!! So when Karly asked me to be their birth photographer, I was beyond thrilled and honored. There is nothing I love most, than when past clients have me photograph big milestones in their life.
It was 5:22am and I finally got THE text. Karly was a 5 and progressing, it was time to get ready and head to the hospital. Upon arriving I witnessed Karly go through contractions- a lot of which reminded me of me when I was in labor with my first. It wasn't until she finally got an epidural when things calmed down until the Dr. said it was time to start pushing, and pretty soon a baby girl was born. She did awesome and is one super mamma :)

There is nothing I adore more, than photographing birth stories. The bond between husband and wife is incredible, and witnessing a birth unique to each child is a miracle. I love my job and can't thank my clients enough for trusting me with such a sacred duty to photograph their baby's birth.

Congrats to the new mommy and daddy, and thank you!!

PS I'd be lying if I said I never got teary-eyed during the event... and post processing
