January 15, 2014 Baby Palmer

Last year, I received an email from a newly pregnant Mama. She was having her first baby and wanted me to shoot the birth. Seeing as though THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING TO SHOOT, of course, I was THRILLED! So just after 10am on January 6th, I got the ‘we’re at the hospital and they are prepping her for surgery RIGHT NOW’ call. Thankfully, a delay in bloodwork allowed me to get there before they whisked her away… Here is Mama, just before heading into the operating room.

Time check. Baby was born a mere 10 minutes later.

Hanging in the labor and delivery room with the¬†grandparents and coworkers¬†was sweet. Everybody was happy and anxious and many of them expressed their ‘feelings’ about the new baby being a BOY. I’ve been there. You just KNOW it, right? WRONG! It was a GIRL! We were all shocked. Even the Mama and Daddy thought it was going to be a boy! Everyone was so excited! Seriously, smiles all around, everywhere I looked. This makes waiting to find out the sex of the baby totally WORTH it!

Every time I’ve shot a birth, I’ve cried a little happy tear. What can I say? I’m an emotional sap when it comes to love and babies. This time, it was right at this moment. Proud Daddy and his proud Dad. Both incredibly happy and in love.

Let me tell you, this couple should have LOTS of kids. The world would be a better place if all babies came from such loving, patient, and tender families.
