New life is an amazing thing and to be able to witness a new little human coming into this world is truly a blessing and honor. Even more special when it is your granddaughter. March 1, 2018 I had the honor of witnessing my new granddaughter coming into this world. What a wonderful, exciting, special, emotional moment. I have had the honor of photographing all my grand babies coming into this world. But for some reason this one was different. For a long time my son's girlfriend wasn't going to let me in the room. Which I totally understand how uncomfortable it can be for her. I was so crushed at the thought of missing such an amazing moment. The week she was due to come my son told me that I could be there as long as I was not taking photos of baby coming out. :) I was on cloud nine. I remember the day all my boys were born and I so wish someone was in the room photographing it. There are moments I do not remember and wish I had images of those moments. So I was so happy that I could be there and help capture these moments for them like I had for my other 2 grand babies. I wish them many many many years of happiness and love!
*the look on my sons face during one of Andie's contractions is priceless. She had a pretty tight squeeze on his hand.
Meet my pretty little granddaughter Birkliegh Kelley weighing in at 6 lbs 6 oz. 19 3/4 inches long.
I didn't get to spend to much time in the hospital after she was born as my hubby had to go back to work. And mind you we are about 2.5 to 3 hours away from them. Going home was so hard, I told my hubby I don't want to go-I didn't get to take enough photos lol. I wanted to get her first bath and feet prints and more. He says well at least you made her for her birth. True. I couldn't wait to get her in my studio to do her newborn session. I was so nervous as my helper couldn't come in that day so my son was my helper. At one point I was shaking cause I was nervous, and my son says-mom you ok why are you nervous? I said well I am so happy but nervous cause I want these photos to be awesome and I want you guys to love them-I don't want to mess up knowing I only have today to get them done. Plus my helper is gone. Hes like really mom-you are fine we love whatever you do. Then I relaxed and enjoyed every minute. Even though I felt rushed. I was shocked how nervous I was-I have been doing this for many years and never get nervous for a newborn session. I think I just wanted to make sure mom loved them and I wanted to make my son super happy. Which is weird cause I want every person that walks in my studio to love their images and be happy.
Here are a few favorites from her session. Can't wait to get her in her for her 3 months. They grow so darn fast. I want to capture all of it. Sorry for the cuteness over load. well no not really sorry lol Hope you enjoy!
Thanks again Andie and Dylan for letting me part of this amazing journey.
I love to create art from your memories from newborn, HS Seniors, families and so much more. Capturing the little moments in your life for your to cherish for a lifetime.
