These photos were taken by my dear friend, Rachel.  Part of me is tempted to explain and write captions throughout the photos , but I think they stand strongest on their own.  

When I was given the honor of photographing the birth of my friend Ashley’s daughter, Marion, I told numerous people that capturing those emotions was almost more incredible than giving birth myself.  Well, I’ve found one thing that topped it: allowing myself to experience my labor and delivery experience again through these photos.  The moments when I wanted to escape and not be present, I am able to see clearly and look back on now.  

Rachel, thank you for being there and documenting these moments — for giving up a night of sleep to do it!  I cannot wait for your precious bundle to be here!
