This would more accurately be described as “after-birth photography” because I missed this little Julias debut, as did the rest of the birth team.  :-(   This is especially sad to me because I did make it to her big brothers birth ~ barely ~ but at least I was there!  This little one was just in a big hurry to meet her family!

This was the 1st birth that I have ever attended that has taken place outdoors!  Baby boy was born in a birth tub on the backyard patio.  :-)

Wyatt {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

This was one of the most precious births I have ever attended.  It was June.  Mom was only 34 weeks pregnant when she went into labor, after months of bedrest and preterm birth scares.  I remember their biggest desire was for the baby to be healthy enough to breath on his own so he could go skin to skin immediately after he was born. I remember being so impressed with this mother, having had to deal with all of that and she still had an amazing attitude!  I remember thinking “Who am I to wish for anything more than what I have been given when all they want is for their child to take a breath?”  

Wyatt was born after a short labor.  His birth was intense, so he didn’t go skin to skin right away.  He did breath though.  And he cried.  The NICU staff was INCREDIBLE and I fell in love with them over and over watching how gently he was handled and how eager they were for dad to be close enough to hold his sons hand.  Thankfully both parents got an opportunity to hold and cuddle Wyatt before he left for a short stay in the NICU.  These are his pictures:

I am in love with everything about this birth!  After one son and one daughter mom and dad let this baby be a surprise.  To tell the family they had printed BOY and GIRL on pink and blue sheets of paper so after the birth when mom was settled in with their new baby BOY in the recovery room dad and I went to the waiting area to tell everyone.  It was so fun watching the older children run down the hall to him when we walked up and to watch everyone crowd around the door waiting for him to reveal what their little bundle was!  Of course, he didn’t even have to unfold the paper before they all knew what it was and they were SO excited!  :-)  I had such a great time with this family!
