{welcome tucker}

This preview is from a birth I shot last week.

When my good friend, Jen, asked me last year if I'd photograph the birth of her second child I was so excited - (and honored)! I love the emotion that comes with the birth of a child and being able to caputure that is something that I love.

I met Jen and Travis at the hospital last Wednesday morning.. along with other family members. The entire way to the hospital, as I fought the traffic, I prayed for Jen and her little family. It brought back so many memories of the morning Bradley and I were heading to the hospital to become a family of four. Just a short 16 months ago I might add. I found myself with butterflies as I remembered that day. It was so exciting - I knew that by the afternoon Jen would be feeling all of that same excitement and joy.

As soon as things got going, they went pretty fast. Jen was a great sport and didn't have any of those "mean" moments she warned me may come (hey- sometimes that's just a part of child birth!)... I snapped away all morning long and just before lunch it was "time". My heart started racing for Jen. Her sweet baby arrived quickly! As I watched his arrival behind my camera, I felt the tears streaming down my face. God is so good. Jen and Travis are now the parents of two handsome little boys!

Jen- Thank you again for allowing me to be with you during this special day and for your sweet friendship. You have many fun filled days ahead of you- I know that you'll treasure each and every one of them.

you SERIOUSLY rock at this. there's just something about the vulnerability of your birth photos that tugs at my heart. i love how you document the entire day. you are obviously so good at blending into the background. i've always said when i give birth i don't want a camera within 5 miles, but if i change my mind, I'm calling YOU!

Kari said...

Thank you, everyone!!!

Kati- It was great seeing you too.

Lyndsay- You'll want to change your mind and when you do.. you better call me :)
