I’ve been wanting to make this post for awhile now…I’ve finally gotten around to browsing and editing all the pictures from our hospital stay and I am so excited to share them all! Callie came into this world at 3:36 AM on March 30th, 2015. I had a very fast natural labor and she rocked it! It was so fast the doctor on call didn’t even make it in…it was pretty chaotic but an amazing experience! When we got to the hospital, the nurse said I hadn’t progressed at all. A couple hours later, same thing. I felt so dumb..here I was third kid and coming into the hospital with a false alarm! But I just knew this labor would go fast like Lucy’s, too! So she told us to go walk around L&D for 30 minutes…I started feeling more pain halfway through our walk. So, I decided I didn’t really want to walk anymore because it hurt (ha!) and came back….the nurse hadn’t come to check on me and I was starting to hurt way worse with each contraction. I paged her and she came and checked me and Josh said her eyes got HUGE! She said, “Honey, you’re gonna have a baby in the next hour!” and I was like, “Well, I guess no meds again, huh?” So they carted me off to a room, finally, and got an IV in, each contraction getting WAY way worse, she came in and told me not to push, flipped out and buzzed the other nurses …

Lindsey and I became friends about a year ago when she emailed me and asked to join my small group. We live in the same town, turns out, she is a photographer, too! We bonded over photography and our weird and mostly awkard sense of humor. She found out she was expecting and asked me to shoot some photos of her birth….and of course I said yes! Fast forward to her due date…umm, no baby. So, we went walking a few times trying to get him started doing SOMETHING! Well, on a Sunday morning she messaged me and told me she was having contractions 10 or so minutes apart and she thought it was it. We talked throughout the day and no progression past those 8-10 minute intervals. So, I kept my phone close, but aside from waking up about 20 times that night to ask how she was (still in labor and pretty painful but still not progressing) nothing. They decided to go to the hospital and so I had my sitter come over and was just about to leave when she said not to come…still hadn’t progressed 🙁 so we waited. She continued the same thing until Tuesday morning (in a lot of pain!) when she got her epidural and told me to wait until she got checked again. Well, of course, around 10 something she was like “Umm…I’m at 9” So I RAN out of the house immediately and rushed to the hospital like a crazy person listening to Christmas music trying …

Patrick called me right after my shoot finished early in the morning and I was so frantic I almost caught my lunch on fire! Oops…so, I turned it off and got things in order and left! When I got there, we had some time to kill, but everyone was so excited! I loved watching the family interact. Caroline kept randomly smiling, thinking about how excited she was going to be once Henry arrived. They are just the cutest and sweetest couple! So finally, Caroline progessed enough to start pushing…which took forever!! She did SUCH a great job, never complained at all! Both her mom and husband were so supportive! After 2+ hours of pushing, Henry arrived!!! It was so very sweet! Both of them were extremely excited! I almost started crying with how sweet they were. They got to spend some time with Henry, but he still had some fluid in his lungs so they ended up taking him away to the NICU for a short time and giving him his bath, so we got to miss his bath. As sad as I am about it, I still got plenty of sweet shots since the whole family is ADORABLE and so in love with Henry. Okay, here are the photos!

I just have to say how excited I am about these photos! Kristen found out she was having to be induced a week ago and said it would make her feel better being induced if she had photos documenting the whole thing. Of course I said YES! Birth photos are amazing. We had been texting all morning as she was induced starting early in the morning…well, she told me she was 4cm, so I figured I had a little bit of time. 30 minutes later she messaged me and said “I’d head over. Fast progress. 6-7.” SO I FREAKED OUT, jumped in the car and (safely) drove as quickly as possible to the hospital. I basically frantically ran through the hospital and of course got lost. I told her I was there and she said “I’m pushing” so I start asking random people how to get to labor and delivery, that I was supposed to take pictures and the mom was pushing. I was RUNNING. I’m sure people thought I was insane. OH WELL. So I get there, and really didn’t have much time to get settled or take many before shots. I got a few, though! They called the doctor about 10 minutes after I got there, and within 30 minutes of me arriving, Sam had arrived!! Let me tell you how absolutely perfect he is! He is PERFECT. I am so happy for Kristen and Taylor. They are meant to be parents. Taylor was so sweet to him and I’m pretty sure Sam …

I didn’t have a blog when I photographed Tucker’s birth, so I figured I would go ahead and put these up because I just love these! This was such a great day for me as a photographer. It reminded me about my passion and was such an amazing emotional experience!! Here are some photos.
