It's hard to describe the feelings that come with a request to document a birth. To be invited into such an intimate time is so humbling...and excessively exciting.
It's obviously ridiculous to say that I felt the waiting period as much as Baby E's parents did, but I was obsessive about checking my phone and planning my life around his pending arrival. Through the weeks leading up to the birth, mother Steph and I formed quite a bond through our copious communications. She's a gem and everything about my time with this sweet family has been a gift.
In short, documenting Baby E's welcome into the world was wonderful, a highlight of my summer.
He is perfect and oh-so-loved.
Enjoy this sneak peek of the behind-the-scenes of his arrival into the family. And thank you, Steph and Mike for letting me into your beautiful family and for allowing us to share these sacred moments.
