This last monday evening, er wee hours of the morning, I had the rare privilege of photographing the birth of my friends’ daughter, Marion Annabel.  After having Harlow — and the blessing of having our emotions and experience documented — I knew that capturing this moment would be an incredible gift to others.  I had mentioned to Ashley about my dream to someday become a birth photographer, and she immediately said, “okay I’m due December 15!”

To say I was nervous was an understatement — I told them I would capture these moments, but what if nothing even turned out?  I’m super hard on myself.  I’m excited to grow and improve, but I do know that I tear up every time I look through these images, so I’m hopeful that some emotion was captured and is portrayed through these photos.

A warning to you all  — these photos are completely fine for work, but well, there are just a lot of photos.  {I had such a hard time choosing!}
Sorry, not sorry.

Dustin and Ashley, thank you for allowing me to be present as Marion Annbel entered this world.  I was and still am immensely honored to have taken these photos and been there with you.  We love her so much already!
