I am so excited to share this story with you! I think I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. I get to be there for so many celebrations: engagements, weddings, new babies, family days. I love it! Up until last month, I had never shared in the joy of welcoming a new life into the world except for my own four amazing blessings. I was ecstatic when Jamie and Dustin called me and asked me to shoot the birth of their first baby. It was one of the most incredible, emotional experience in my photography career. I truly loved watching the excitement unfold as Jamie's contractions grew stronger. She was so strong and brave as she prepared for the hardest thing her body will ever endure. The moms were there cheering her on and crying with joy as Reese finally entered the world. I held my breath and almost stopped shooting as the nurse handed this brand-new bundle of love to her mama. I'll never forget that moment or how her new parents wondered at her sweet little face and tiny hands and feet. It was love at first sight. I am incredibly thankful for this "job" and the privileges it brings me to be a part of your worlds. I don't think many of you will ever know how much you have touched my life. Sometimes I feel like I'm just clicking the shutter for me and my own happy little memories. This is one that I'll never forget for sure.
