I had an unforgettable day yesterday. One I will never ever forget. You all will recognize this friend of mine. My best friend Megan gave birth to her second baby girl yesterday … and I got to be a part of it. I can’t even really put into words what this experience meant to me. This was my first birth to photograph. I have given birth myself, and can honestly say that the day Bella was born was the happiest day of my life so far. However, being on the other side of a birth… and being there for one of your dearest friends is just a completely life changing experience. Megan was amazing, laboring for many hours and doing it all completely natural … I give her big rock star points 😉 Her husband and birth partner was calm, supportive and just perfect the entire time… and he caught his baby! How cool is that?
I cried tears of joy while I was there, I cried again while making this slide show and I am tearing up again as I write this blog post 😉 But without further ado… Welcome to this world Olivia Charlotte. You are already loved so much. I can’t wait to watch you grow. I am honored that I got to be a part of your life from the very beginning!
