Get your tissues ready! I’ve been saving Zachary’s birth story because it is a real tear jerker.
When I first met Baby Zachary’s parents I told them that I had a strong feeling that Zachary was going to make a fashionably late appearance into this world. however, I didn’t actually think I would be right.
Baby Zachary came into the world five days past his due date. After 15 hours of labor and 1 hour of pushing, this bright-eyed little Irish boy was born on the perfect day. St. Patty’s Day has never been so perfect for this family!
When he came earth-side he didn’t cry. He merely opened his eyes and looked around. He was instantly placed upon his momma’s chest where he stayed nuzzling her cheek and with his hand over her lips. This little boy wanted to be with his momma from the start.
If that doesn’t overwhelm you with joy, Zachary’s grandmother was there. This woman made my heart so incredibly happy. The pride and the excitement that she showed was amazing. After ten…yes, you read that right TEN grandchildren. She still cries when one is born. In her words, “Each one is a special miracle”. Truer words have never been spoken. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Yes, I cry when babies are born!
If you are on the fence about birth photography, make an amazing decision that you won’t regret. Hire a birth photographer to capture these moments. Capture the moments that you won’t remember but will want to remember. Hire a birth photographer so your partner can focus on you and your baby. Hire a birth photographer to capture the firsts. I promise you will not regret it.
Thank you so much M. Family for giving me the privilege of capturing this special moment in your lives. See you for your newborn session soon!
