A few weeks ago, I had the absolute honor of photographing the beautiful birth of Sally Lyn. I wasn’t sure I would make it to the hospital in time, and I cut it pretty close: Sally was born pretty soon after I walked in the room!
Jacquie has become such a wonderful friend of mine, since meeting her about a year ago. Sally is her third sweet little girl — do you remember the reveal cake Harlow and I made for her a while back? She is crazy talented, beyond kind and her labor and delivery made me want an epidural like whoooooa. ;)
I want to let these photos tell their story, so I’ll get a few things out of the way:
- yes, Jacquie is the only person I know who brings a knitting project to her labor room.
- The love between Brandon and Jacquie was absolutely beautiful. I was so thankful to be there during this gift of a birth — after some scary and difficult birth experiences, it was a beautiful gift.
- Sally is so cute, and Jacquie is just stunning — as you will see!
Jacquie and Brandon, thank you for letting me document these beautiful moments. Words don’t describe the emotions that filled the room that evening, and I pray somehow these photos capture these moments and memories for you in a way that blesses you.
Love you both and your sweet family!
I will be booking a very limited number of birth photos in 2015. Please email me (kacia @ coconutrobot dot com) if you are interested. Thank you!
