i had the amazing privilege of meeting this new little family of three just hours after little alexander came into the world.

i don’t get to do hospital sessions very often, but it is such a precious add-on to the studio session.

the sweetness of these new parents looking adoringly at every little feature on the baby they have been anticipating the past nine months just takes your breath away.

these little boys arrived at 38 weeks along…

quite a miracle considering their mommy was put on strict bed rest at 23 weeks.

god is so good!

luke jeffrey was the chunker weighing in at seven pounds, seven ounces and already has a feisty personality.

beau kenneth was six pounds, four ounces and already giving sweet little smiles.

it was an honor to capture them in the hospital all bundled up and new.

precious mateo gave his mommy a long labor,

and eventually ended up having to arrive via c-section.

born at 2:40 in the morning, i got to meet him when he was just ten hours old.

he wasn’t a big fan of being unwrapped from his blanket, but he loved holding onto his mommy’s finger.

it was such an honor to meet this family for the first time as they welcomed their baby into the world.

mateo… you are a precious and loved little one.

going to see a new baby in the hospital is such a precious, intimate time.

i love capturing those sweet moments that are over before you know it.

after photographing mayson’s birth, i went home for a few hours and then headed back.

i had the privilege of being there when mayson met her big sister, raegan.

to see this little family all together for the first time was a precious, precious moment.

there are those experiences in your life that you truly will never forget.

getting to be a part of sweet mayson’s birth is definitely one of those.

i have three children of my own, but all three were born c-section.  i’ve never actually seen a regular birth. so when my dear friend, jenna, asked me to photograph hers, i was excited and, admittedly, pretty nervous

.  jenna was scheduled to be induced early in the morning, but due to lack of space in the hospital, wasn’t admitted until the afternoon.  i got to the hospital around 8pm…. she was at a four, but i was not about to miss the birth waiting for her to be farther along!  she stayed at a four for a long time… i had the privilege of hanging out with their family,  trying to find the best sleeping spots in the hospital (which do not exist), so jenna + her hubby, jeff, could try to get some sleep.  we continued to check in, and she continued to be at a four.  then all of the sudden, around 2:30ish, we got the call that she was at a ten!  we raced into the room where they were waiting for the doctor to arrive.  jenna pushed for a bit, and within a few minutes, mayson was here!  born at 3:04 in the morning,  jenna was a rockstar- she handled labor like it was nothing!  i have never experienced something like that and was totally overcome with emotion.  getting to watch my friends see their daughter for the first time is a priceless memory.

when i left the hospital that morning, i just sat in my car for a few minutes, just thinking about how incredible God is to create life like this.  i was overwhelmed by His amazing creativity and love for us.

mayson lynn, God created every sweet hair on your head, and knows every bit of you and loves you so very much.  He gave you the most amazing mommy, daddy, and big sister.  i look forward to watching you grow and being a part of your life for a long, long time.  you will always have a very special place in my heart, little one.

oh, this baby.

his mommy and i have been friends for a long time, so i couldn’t wait to see his sweet little face.

but he made us wait… an extra 11 days!

my plane tickets were already booked, so i was worried he wasn’t going to come in time.

but he did. and he is perfect….

all 10 POUNDS and 10.6 OUNCES of him!

i got to meet him while he was still in the hospital, so of course we had to capture some of his first moments.

and then his first afternoon at home.

precious memories.

i love newborns.
and i love my newborn sessions with the bows and little beds and all the perfect cuteness.
newborn sessions are so much fun.
but there is something extra special about hospital sessions.
seeing a family with their brand new addition.
watching them all interact.
get to know one another.
it is a very intimate, personal moment.
i always feel so honored to get to capture that.
this hospital session was extra special
as it was with some of my very favorite people.
little hannah adeline-
you are so loved, sweet girl.
and you have no idea how blessed you are that god chose this family for you.
