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.
