If you’ve worked with me before, you’ve probably heard me say what an honor it is to be chosen to photograph your family. It’s so true! I feel so blessed every time I put another family in front of my lens whether its for a family session or celebrating a new baby with an in-home session. This time, I was invited to share in another family’s most joyous moment– the birth of their baby. Even more exciting, the family was waiting for delivery day to find out the gender! To a photographer, capturing that moment is a dream! Being there to capture one of life’s greatest blessings for this family was truly a privilege that I am excited to share! I am honored to be able to perfect the art of birth photography in Dallas.
A Sunday Afternoon
On Sunday afternoon, I was just arriving home from a Fresh 48 shoot when I got a text from Mama. She was having some contractions, but nothing that seemed serious yet. I went ahead and packed my bag with all of my supplies and put it in the car *just* in case she needed me. The day went on with no progress, but I told my husband that I felt like it was still going to be the day!
At midnight, I put my keys and purse near the door and head off to bed. At 12:30, the phone rang! I’m not sure that I’ve ever answered the phone that late with such excitement. It was baby time!
At the hospital, there was plenty of gender guessing while we waited. Each parent was expecting a different gender, but the Grandma’s were both Team Girl. The next morning, the family got to surprise the older siblings, too! That reaction was priceless! The rest of the story is too good to share in words, you have to see it yourself!

And… Her first newborn sneak Peek!
What fun is shooting a birth without newborn photos to follow? This beauty is going to be one well documented sweetie! She’s coming back for their fall family portraits in October!
