Welcome to my blog!

I believe that if you love doing something, it's impossible to fail. I have always loved taking pictures but never would have guessed that I could have this much fun doing it. Take a look around, get comfortable, and let me know what you think....

Labor and Delivery

Well everyone, here are the much anticipated first ever labor and delivery photos I've ever taken.  Okay...so maybe I am the only one that was anticipating this day? Surely not...at any rate, I had been waiting in anticipation for many weeks for this day to come and finally it did - Kristen delivered baby Levi on Friday, September 17th at 7:53 PM.  I was honored to be invited to photograph the whole thing.

Having never witnessed a live birth, let alone photograph one, I was filled with a variety of emotions when I pulled into the hospital parking lot.  Excitement, nervousness, anxiety, and fear all took their turns in my mind as I walked through the doors.  I found Kristen's room, which was filled with a very warm friendly family - to say I was nervous would be an understatement. It wasn't long after I got there, when the nurse sent the family out of the room and announced that we were going to be pushing soon.  I could hardly contain my excitement.  After only about an hour, baby Levi was born - 21 inches long, 7lbs 10 ounces.  Words cannot express what a beautiful and emotional experience this was for me.

  Congratulations to Kristen and Ryan and thank you a million times over for allowing me to experience such a deeply personal and special moment in your lives.  You made this experience one that I'll never forget.
