I can’t tell you how excited I am to post this sweet little family’s images on the blog.
I started out being hired to photograph the birth of Benjamin, their fourth child and first boy. We began with her maternity session which was actually a beautiful milk bath session (posted here)
Julia delivers SUPER FAST, and by super fast I mean, her second child was born in her hallway at home by the firemen! We kept in close contact those last couple weeks because she knows how fast she goes and I needed to be on the ready. The other birth photog they had hired for the last two births had missed them because of that as well, so I wanted to be sure to run.
The only days I wasn’t available are the weekend of September 25,26,27, as my son was getting married that Saturday and I was shooting another wedding Sunday. No problem she said.. She had planned on going in the 28 Monday. (she knows her body!) On Friday night she said “No worries, I don’t think he will arrive before Monday”.
Saturday morning at 7:30a.m. her hubby called and said it was time.
I was so bummed.. if it wasn’t my own son’s wedding and if I didn’t have my hair and makeup person coming in an hour I would have went. And I should have. She delivered 10 minutes after they arrived at the hospital!
That’s only the second birth I have missed in 12 years! UGH.
Nonetheless, we changed the packaged to a lifestyle session at home and I am SO PLEASED at how it came out!
The days are loooong, but they go by in a blink.
Thank you Brandi of Beauty By Brandi for the makeup that day that helped Julia feel so pretty as a new mommy again!
